ISP status monitoring.
I'm giving this a whirl on debian-isp as I figure its subscribers have
the most experience with this. I'm looking into setuping up network
monitoring on one of my home boxes to keep my cable ISP (Cox/Road
Runner) honest. I'd like to check basic connectivity and DNS service
up/down/speed at a minimum and bandwidth if possible.
I've read a bit about Big Brother and Spong. I was wondering if any of
you have recommendations for either or others I'm not aware of. Also,
some advice on configuring this to monitor nicely.
