commented Aug 23, 2016


Inspired by #1282, this pull request includes changes to suppress stale check events (i.e. checks with an expired ttl) when the relevant client has an active keepalive event.

Also updates spec config.json and API query helper to use instead of localhost to help those of us with working IPv6 stacks :)

Related Issue

Closes #1282

Motivation and Context

Motivated by a desire to reduce the noise and boost the signal :)
#1282 and #861 (comment) describe the desire to suppress stale check events if keepalive is also alerting.

Added unit tests

update specs to use in lieu of localhost
ipv6 resolution of localhost is problematic as the API does not currently bind
to [::1].
