Gateways Widget on Dashboard - RTT Ping Times?

  • If this shouldn't be here please move or just delete/lock my thread.

    Similar to how you can change the traffic graphs update interval times, is there any way to configure or change the Gateways widget update interval times? Such that I could ping my gateway every N seconds (or milliseconds) as I desire? To take that a step further, is there any way to output the results of the RTT gateway pings to a log file?

    Currently I have heartbeats set up on machines behind the firewall. It's possible (or probable) that I'm a beginner PfSense user and just don't know how to set this up - but if it's not possible on 2.0 could it be possible on 2.1?

    The widget doesn't ping the gateways, it only reports the times as kept by apinger. It simply reads the status output from /tmp/apinger.status and formats it for the gui.

    The apinger process controls how often a monitor IP gets pinged, and that is controlled by the settings under System > Gateways.
