Router Ping

  • I am trying to work out how I can send a simple ping to a external router and have this shown on the monitor console I do not want to install agents but simply perform the ping and generate alerts from the result.

    Many Thanks.

  • you can configure such alerts: Monitor Tab - External Monitoring - System Check

  • That is correct but only for existing devices that have an agent, I simply want to ping a device without an agent on it and have this ping recorded on the monitor screen. We look after 20 ADSL routers and need to know when these devices become unavailable from the outside world.



    Thanks.

  • I have not found the ping monitor to be reliable. Sometimes it alerts, usually not.

  • You could always try and build an SNMP set to check it. If they have SNMP enabled it shouldn't be any problems to get the uptime from them and set the alerts.
