 * finally, calculating the 95th average rates for the period
 * returns a hashref with bytes transferred, peak rate, average rate, and 95th

get_the_date

returns an array with year, month, day, hours, min, and seconds as scalars

is_arrayref

tests is the argument passed in is an arrayref. Returns true or undef.

should_i_skip_it

Interfaces can be ignored based on their name or description. Great examples of interfaces you might wan to ignore for reporting purposes would be VLAN or port-channel interfaces. This sub chooses which interfaces to ignore based on your settings in rtgreport.conf.

status

timestamp_sanity
