[smokeping-users] Email Alerts?

Hi everyone,

I have Smokeping setup and monitoring a few critical servers. I have two
challenges left before I'm finished. One, getting email alerts to work and
two, zoom graphs. I will address the zoom graphs in a later post.


Mail does leave the box using Net::Smtp. I used the perl script (below) from
a previous poster and it works. So this tell me the Net::Smtp per module
works, the firewall rules on the server work, and destination mail server
accepts my HELO.

use Net::SMTP;
$smtp = Net::SMTP->new('mail.domian.com');
$smtp->datasend("Smokeping Rules\n");

sendmail also works from the command line.

I have added this (below) to the config for testing and place a bogus IP in
the hosts file. I still do not recieve an email and the mailq is empty.

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = ==0%,==0%,==0%,==0%,>0%
comment = test packet loss

Thanks in advance.
