I need some opinions, if you all would be so kind.
My company has several distribution centers located in various parts of the United States. About two-thirds of these DC’s are all connected to us by the same company, Qwest, so I put the IP’s for Qwest as parent hosts for all of the switches/servers in the appropriate DC’s. Unfortunately, these IP addresses are apparently unpingable, so they consistantly return “DOWN” regardless of whether or not they are actually down.
Do any of you have any other ideas on how I can use these two parent hosts to notify us if our circuit goes down to spare us twenty different notifications?
If you need more information, I will try to share. Thanks!
