ping-collector - get reachability of hosts


ping-collector version 1.25 from remstats 1.0.13a
usage: ping-collector [options]
where options are:
    -d nnn  enable debugging output at level 'nnn'
    -f fff  use 'fff' for config-dir [/home/groups/r/re/remstats/etc/config]
    -F      force collection even if it is not time
    -G GGG  only try hosts from group 'GGG', a comma-separated list
    -h      show this help
    -H HHH  only try hosts from 'HHH', a comma-separated list
    -K KKK  only try hosts with key(s) 'KKK', a comma-separated list
    -u      for compatibility with run-remstats; ignored


ping-collector uses multiping to get numbers on how reachable the hosts are. Each host is sent 10 pings (ICMP echo-request) and the number of responses and the min, max and average RTT (Return Trip Time) is logged, giving the variables ping-sent, ping-rcvd, pingrtt-min, pingrtt-avg and pingrtt-max.
