Dpinger monitoring for failover issues



  • I have two VPN connections with ExpressVPN.
    If the monitor address is set to google, they should with 50% packet loss

    from my linux pc, if I use linux traceroute, I get the following results

    • I believe this is a UDP traceroute
      traceroute to google.com (172.217.23.174), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
      1  10.x.x.x (10.x.x.x)  35.904 ms  35.882 ms  35.873 ms
      hosted-by-i3d.net (31.204.154.1)  35.864 ms  35.853 ms  35.843 ms
      100ge.cr0-br3.smartdc.rtm.i3d.net (109.200.218.166)  35.830 ms 100ge.cr1-br3.smartdc.rtm.i3d.net (109.200.218.246)

    • I believe this is an ICMP traceroute
      traceroute -I to google.com (172.217.23.174), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets
      1  10.x.x.x (10.x.x.x)  26.314 ms  26.318 ms  26.316 ms
      2  * * *
      3  * * *

    If i understand this correctly, it seems that hosted-by-i3d.net (31.204.154.1) does not pass ICMP

    Are there any other options/way i can monitor the vpn connection to enable failover of the vpn connection.
