Im using ping below to check basic connectivity on a few boxes.
I would like it to alarm after for example the box is off the air for five minutes or so.
rather than ASAP when it goes unpingable.
with setup I have I get alarms soon as something dissappears , I need it to wait a bit
due to using dsl based connectivity in some places.
Ideas situaton check box every 60 sec for five min… if they all fail then alarm.
