It goes red when the ping utility that is used (fping or hobbitping)
says that the host did not respond. How many pings are sent and what the
timeouts are is decided by the ping tool; see their man-pages for
details. You can tune this through commandline options for the ping
tool, these go into the FPINGCMD setting in hobbitserver.cfg
