I am using a Teltonika Rut955 with OpenWrt. I want to read its monitoring data (signal strength) and configure it. Instead of using the default GUI the goal is to unify the router along with other products in a single unified GUI.
To access the router monitoring data and config I used ubus and uci. This is working okay so far, but I am missing a lot of documentation about all config options (what they do and which are even available). Also the connection between those config files and the services that require a restart is unclear to me.
Is there a better option/API to change the router config at a higher level? I hoped the webui uses a REST backend and only visualizes this via HTML, but this is not the case. Is anything similar to this available or planned?
Thanks for the link to zabbix, that is new to me. It looks like an insteresting tool, but I guess not all options are covered by it. Especially changing config seems to be not supported, only monitoring. But I will have a more detailed look into it?
