Sends ICMP requests to IP addresses and monitors the connection
ICPLD (Internet Connection Performance Logging Daemon) is a connection monitor that sends ICMP requests to stated IP addresses and monitors if your machine has a working network connection. It logs failed attempts to reach the hosts, and stamps a log as soon as it gets a reply. It tracks of when and for how long a connection was unavailable and records both total down time and each occasion of interrupted connection. It supports IPv6 and can execute a command whenever a connection goes up or down (useful for alerting users).
