1310 Bridge linktest - SNMP?

I've got a pair of 1310 bridges running in bridge mode. I'm trying to find a way to automatically run periodic link tests and have them available for analysis.

My first thought was to use kron and run the dot11 linktest and view it using syslog. But kron is not present in the verison of IOS on the 1300 (12.4(3g)JA1).

Does anyone know of a way to get this information through SNMP or another means?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: 1310 Bridge linktest - SNMP?

Well no answers, but I figured out a way to accomplish this. I'll share!

I used a macro program on windows to automate ssh'ing to the 1310, then issued the dot11 linktest command on the device. I then set the logging to debug, and sent the output to my syslog server. Now, every 30 minutes, I get a syslog record of my link state.

This is especially important, these bridges are outside and we are trying to gauge the affect adverse weather conditions will have on them.
