if I use a “-n 10” option in check_icmp (or “-p 10” in check_ping), how can I force nagios to send an icmp packet every 1 sec? If I manually run the command from CLI, it answers after 2 or 3 seconds, which means that the icmp packet are being sent almostly in a “flood” fashion…
Sounds strange… look like something on the machines ping…
Just checked on my solaris 8 :
root(sun58)# time ./check_ping -H 192.168.10.48 -p 10 -w 2000,20% -c 3000,50%
PING OK - Packet loss = 0%, RTA = 1.00 ms
which is correct. as the time between the first and the last packet is 9 secs…
I get, instead,
what happens with the standard ping command?
