ping intermittently

Hi NetPro,

I want to run a ping on a router for 24hrs and idea is for the router to ping the ip address every 10mins for the duration specified. how do i go bout it ?

Re: ping intermittently

Cisco has a feature to do this but they have made it very confusing since they decided to change what they called it and the commands to configure it.

Go look for Service Assurance Agent (SAA) and Service Level Agreements (IP SLAs) monitoring and management

Depending on your IOS level the commands are different.

I suspect this was a marketing thing because in most cases all they did was replace "RTR" with "ip sla monitor" in the commands.

Either way the feature is very nice and since everything can be read via SNMP you can use your favorite monitoring tool to collect and graph the data.
