The ability to perform a speedtest on a schedule was introduced in version 1.0 of the Network Toolkit.
You can actually use the included search command in a scheduled search if you want to run them on a frequency. You can ping them from SPL like this:
| ping 127.0.0.1
And traceroute like this:
| traceroute google.com
Network Toolkit 1.2 now includes the ability to monitor servers for uptime. See https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3491/.
I have been thinking of adding this into the app.
Which of the following are you looking to do?
Ping a list of servers on an ad-hoc basis (not scheduled) from the search command? In this case, you could ping multiple servers like:
| ping "127.0.0.1,127.0.0.2,127.0.0.3"
Cool. Thanks for the fast response. I have this planned for the next feature release.
Do you have an estimate on the number of servers you want to monitor and how often you would like to monitor them? A rough estimate is fine. I'm asking just so that I can test the feature at the scale you would be using it at.
