traceroute sensor



We have just setup a traceroute sensor to write out the log file when it is run and wanted to know if it is possible to get the log file sent as part of the notification when the sensor goes down?

Unfortunately not :( But you could use this approach instead, i.e. have the sensor log all routes into a syslog sensor and then alert accordingly. The notification will always have the last 20 syslog messages included. Would that be an option?
