I'd like to share with you a new probe I've been working on -
integrating youtube-dl project to work with smokeping. The idea was that
we needed to run some tests to get the customer's "experience" when
using videosharing sites like youtube. We developed this probe, and
measure the time it takes to download specific content from our test probes.
Plugin description and examples are here:
There is a bit of a deviation from standard plugins - meaning it ignores
the pings variable and does only one test. This was done in order to
prevent the IP getting banned for too agressive behavior by the video
sites. It can be reactivated - I'm open to ideas.
Here's a sample graph from a slave probe (1 hour polling):
@tobi: if you feel this plugin could be useful and should be included in
the main release, let me know and I'll see how I can merge it...
