Hi Bee,

Thanks for the reply.

I tried your suggestion but it doesn't seem to work.

I get the following error when i restart the smokeping after making the
changes as you suggested.

[root at test ~]# service smokeping start
Starting smokeping: ERROR: alert 260highlatency
(/usr/local/smokeping/var/location/host/host1) is not defined
### fping seems to report in 1 milliseconds


type = matcher
edgetrigger = yes
pattern =  CheckLatency(l=>260,x=>10)
comment = Checking increase in Latency

alerts = 260highlatency

I don't know what is wrong and where.

Thanks and regards

Hi Shekher,

You can define different checkLatency alert


type = matcher
edgetrigger = yes
pattern =  CheckLatency(l=>100,x=10)


type = matcher
edgetrigger = yes
pattern =  CheckLatency(l=>300,x=10)

Apply the latency alert to the host that you want.



 Bee Hock.

I am trying to use CheckLatency matcher in Smokeping. It works fine if I
have all the sites with approximately same latency.

My question is how can I use this matcher if I have sites with different
latencies for example few sites with 100ms latency and few with 300ms? I
tried to go through the man pages and googling for this but couldn't find
any useful info.

Thanks for help in advance.

Best regards,
