[hobbit] conn alerts based on ping time

Sounds like they need to through in MRTG and go red when the traffic is
high on the link.

And then throw in things like 

bb-ospf.pl to check that ospf is not flapping over the link

bb-xsnmp.pl to check out the routers at each end and the interfaces


you can also use http to a reliable server on the remote side as part of
the link test.  Just make the http test for the link dependent on the
router and the conn test to the web server.

Subject: [hobbit] conn alerts based on ping time


I'm helping someone set up Hobbit at their company, and they want to
monitor the status of a remote office T1 link.  Of course Hobbit can
tell them if the link goes totally down, or you can ignore bad pings
with "badconn",  but they want to know when the link is slow, as they
often have periods of time when the pings are not dropped, but instead
taking 1-3 seconds (instead of <100ms like normal).  

Is there any chance that Hobbit will soon support comparing the ping
replies to specifiied values for green, yellow, and red?

Somethign like: myhost.com # conn:200:500

This would make myhost.com's conn test go yellow if the ping was between
200 and 500ms, and red if it was over 500ms.
Since hobbit already graphs the numeric values of the ping replies, this
seems like it would be fairly easy to add?
