How to check when connection to server is down.
Posted on 28 lutego 2014
Sometimes small scripts can help with describing a problem.
I had issues with connection to one of my servers and I had it only from time to time for a short moments.
while true do if ! ping -c 1 -i 5 "$1" &>/dev/null ; then echo "Server '$1' is down" echo $(date +'%F %H:%M:%S') mtr --report "$1" fi sleep 5 done
This small script told me when my server was going down and I could show my ISP what is going wrong.
