hey

we have a wish to use som ping sensor more for logging, so we like it to stay green rather then red when icmp timeout happens. i read som old topic that said it was not possible is it still not possible to make the sensor stay green when ping timeout and just logging it?

i read there is a pingwarning custom sensor out there. Will it have a huge impact on the resource usage or is it renesable to have 5-10 custom sensor of the custom ping warning?

Regard Hea

Hi Hea,

You can also try the StatisticalPingXML sensor.
it pings a comma separated list of hosts for statistical reasons and requires only one instance.

Hi Hea,

Could it be that you mistakenly added the sensor as a Exe/Script sensor
instead off a Exe/Script Advanced sensor ?
