pingmon offers an easy way to check if, eg. provider links works fine. It is very useful if you don't have an external monitoring software or you didn't trust it. pingmon is using standard cli ping. So it is reporting packet loss, min, average and max rtt. It is running at configurable intervals and sends as many pings as configured with the repeat counter. Results are written to daily rotated files. To ensure that flash isn't running out of memory the parameter "loghist" will keep an eye on it. With log level "debugging" pingmon will forward messages to the corresponding lines.
