An example of how to use mrtg-ping-probe.  This makes use of the Routers2
extensions, if you have Routers2.


Target[junos-prod.its-ping]: `/u01/mrtg/bin/mrtg-ping-probe -p
'1000*max/1000*min' -s` / 1000000

routers.cgi*ShortName[junos-prod.its-ping]: Ping: RTT

routers.cgi*Options[junos-prod.its-ping]: nomax nototal scaled nopercent

routers.cgi*UnScaled[junos-prod.its-ping]: none

routers.cgi*BgColour[junos-prod.its-ping]: #ffffff

routers.cgi*Icon[junos-prod.its-ping]: clock-sm.gif

routers.cgi*UpperLimit[junos-prod.its-ping]: 0.01


Change this to fit your own requirements.   Note the
routers.cgi*UpperLimit[] directive is to ensure proper scaling when RTT are
very low.  The calculations in the Target[] are to ensure that the values
are in SI units (seconds) to three decimal places.

Subject: [mrtg] Using MRTG ping-probe with MRTG



I'm trying to use MRTG Ping-Probe with MRTG.  I have no idea how to get
started.  I already have MRTG monitoring network traffic for 2000 devices.
Just don't know how to incorporate Ping-Probe.  I've read the documentation
and still can't figure it out.  Any help would be appreciated.
