[Xymon] Simple Ping Test from a node/server

Summary doesn’t duplicate stats, it sends a single status of the overall status of all the clients on that server. IE if all the clients are green, the summary is green. Otherwise, worst color is sent.

I built something similar just this week using a Raspberry Pi.  I set it up as it's own standalone Xymon server and put it inside a client's network to monitor things from the inside, and then I'm monitoring the Pi from the outside using my primary Xymon server.  I'm not having the Pi Xymon server duplicate it's stats on my outside primary Xymon server, but it can be configured that way since the man pages talk about doing it.

Scroll down near the bottom of the man page to the 'SENDING SUMMARIES TO REMOTE XYMON SERVERS' section.

Thank you.

Hey all,
  I want to monitor my backup internet connection (simple ping test outbound is fine).   I'm going to throw a raspberry pi with dual interfaces on the network, one on the main network and one on the backup internet connection.

 What's the best way to implement a ping test from the PI and have it be part of the main server display?
 Solutions I've considered so far:
 - set up the PI as a xymon server and figure out how to get the test results to go back to the main server.
 - setup the PI as a xymon client and write some sort of ping test that does the work
 - something else I missed?
