I am actually using it for one of the hosts that I am monitoring. A lot
of my users access data and such from the cancer.gov website, so it
seemed like a good idea to monitor it. Well, they are blocking ICMP
packets, so I couldn't use ICMP fping. and I am now using echoping very
Here is the snippet from my config
binary = /usr/local/bin/echoping
revalidate_data = yes
menu = Cancer.gov
title = www.cancer.gov Webserver
host = www.cancer.gov
probe = EchoPingHttp
I chose to revalidate the data since the university here is behind a web
cache and just doing a normal echoping would give me possibly false
The website that this point to is here:
Hope that helps
