Ping testing
« on: February 06, 2019, 09:20:54 PM »

I am wondering about the possibility of a hosted service or some software that will repeatedly ping an IP address and configureably report n successive non-responses as an alert. Alert by email. (AA do an alert by Twitter [but most of the time it doesnít seem to work for me at the moment] which is really nice, and by SMS)

I know that Firebrick makes a box that can do this, and Thinkbroadband uses it iirc.

But Iím wondering if I could get some of my own IPs monitored with this kind of technology.

If I could find some software that does this then I could run it on my hosted (external) Raspberry Pi. Would need to speak IPv6 in that case tho. Writing my own thing would be a pain at the moment.

Or else a hosted system, a server that does this.

I have seen lots of things on the web about software for this, got rather lost.

Smokeping plus some donkeying around might do it?

Doesn't the thinkbroadband BQM do monitoring along the lines you want? I have both IPv4 and IPv6 monitors running - see https://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,21177.msg367191.html#msg367191

Scrub that.

Have a look at https://f8lure.mouselike.org - it can send you an email when a link goes down.
