this is a command-line tool to generate png charts of the ping times to a given host.
it runs in perpetuity and updates the graph every second for vaguely real-time monitoring.
it requires fping to be installed.
php ping.php <ip address> [filename]. graphs will be generated under
filename isn't specified, it defaults to
the ip address.
you can also run it with
./start.sh <ip address> [filename], which will
nohup to fork it off into the background so you can do something else.
please only ping things you should, though at a rate of one per second it's not like you're going to ruin anything. probably.
pings/index.php is a page that will list some of the charts (if available).
it's not particularly good since i made it in a rush, but if you zoom in
it has css to make the images not turn into mud. small favors.
