I just wondered what the expected dpinger behaviour is when it alarms, should it email me?
I have the following in my logs:
Feb 3 09:19:31 trogdor rc.gateway_alarm: >>> Gateway alarm: WAN_PPPOE (Addr:126.96.36.199 Alarm:1 RTT:106630ms RTTsd:196447ms Loss:0%) Feb 3 09:20:16 trogdor rc.gateway_alarm: >>> Gateway alarm: WAN_PPPOE (Addr:188.8.131.52 Alarm:0 RTT:71316ms RTTsd:172082ms Loss:0%) Feb 4 19:23:24 trogdor rc.gateway_alarm: >>> Gateway alarm: WAN_PPPOE (Addr:184.108.40.206 Alarm:1 RTT:205796ms RTTsd:618467ms Loss:0%) Feb 4 19:24:45 trogdor rc.gateway_alarm: >>> Gateway alarm: WAN_PPPOE (Addr:220.127.116.11 Alarm:0 RTT:3883ms RTTsd:1130ms Loss:0%)
But I didn't get an email to notify me about these.
Should I have expected one, or do I misunderstand? Should I be looking for these messages in syslog and alarming that way?
(Testing email notifications works fine, I have received them before when I forgot to configure a default Queue in the traffic shaper etc)
