I have modified the tcpping script to output values much like fping‘s -C mode used in smokeping. At the same time I’ve created a new smokeping probe which uses this new mode. Hence we will have a TCPPing Probe for smokeping, yay!
site-note: I wrote a WPing Probe (windows ping) ages ago too. It expects a data folder, with files named for the hosts you’re monitoring. You also have to set-up a job on the windows box to run the ping and direct the output into the correct file. I share the folder using samba and just copy the ping output there when done.
