For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Monkeybrains ping to their router (skipping mine), high latency and variation
3 projects | reddit.com/r/sanfrancisco | 30 Aug 2021
When I had intermittent problems with Comcast, I ran prometheus with blackbox_exporter (to ping a number of hosts every 10s) and surfboard_exporter (to show signal strength; only applicable to cable modem). Take a traceroute and add all the important routers to the list of hosts to ping. I discovered that the signal strength of one of the channels went down every time there was an issue. I never found out whose side the problem was (Comcast or mine), but when I downgraded to an old cable modem that uses different channels the problem went away.
Network pIng or "is it up?" like testing utility with reporting via gotify or email
4 projects | reddit.com/r/docker | 14 Aug 2022
Personally, I use have Prometheus with Blackbox exporter to create metrics for sites I need to monitor. Grafana then uses Prometheus as a data source, so I can monitor the data. I've also set up email alerts in Grafana.

We have blackbox_exporter running in different AWS regions as well as a few DO droplets. prometheus scrapes the data.
Network Monitoring Criteria...not tools
3 projects | reddit.com/r/networking | 31 Mar 2022
One thing related sorta to what I thought you were asking about is end-to-end path probing. You setup a probe that starts from one end of the network, and traverses the full path to what the user would see. In SRE-land we call this "blackbox probing". There are tools for this.
Never have an SSL certificate expire again
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Feb 2022
Or with Prometheus: https://github.com/prometheus/blackbox_exporter
https endpoints will include the probe_ssl_earliest_cert_expiry metric, which is the expiration in UNIX epoch seconds. Use with the builtin time() function.
How to Monitor Endpoints in Kubernetes using Blackbox Exporter
2 projects | dev.to | 16 Jan 2022
You can have a look at the detailed example for more scenarios in this example.yml. With some config changes on the Prometheus side, the Blackbox Exporter then sends metrics relevant to the configs applied, we will see this in more detail in the coming sections.

I would recommend Prometheus in conjunction with Blackbox exporter. Blackbox can do ping checks like you're doing now, but also TCP/HTTP(S), etc.
