Re: script to check host status and report email in certaion losses

Dear acid_kewpie,

Thanks for your response and i have tried most of all these stuffs which only generates if down. What i want is, i want a script that alerts only when losses reaches certain values, say 10% in an hour. I tried to modify but couldnt get the result, may be because i was bad at scripting and i am a newbie.

Any more helps will be highly thanked.


Regards,
Franklin

well these scripts run with cron, as you requested. taking an hourly average will require MUCH more than a single fire-and-forget style script. cron won't help you there, you'd want a proper service like groundwork, hyperic, opennms, nagios etc.
