This script updates the summary ring statistics. It's written as a CGI script, but provided that file ownerships and permissions allow it, it can also be run from the command line or from cron. The script can be used with Ringlink 3.05
or later versions.
Without this script, Ringlink automatically updates the ring stats daily, and those automatic 'on-the-fly' updates are most often sufficient. This script may be useful on Ringlink systems with many sites, if the automatic updates are considered to take too long time.
You need to set the path to the data directory before uploading statsupdate.pl, and if you don't put it in the Ringlink CGI directory, you also need to edit the second line.

Otherwise it prints the raw data for all the rings on the system.
