       Smokeping::probes::AnotherSSH - Another SSH probe

SYNOPSIS

        *** Probes ***

        +AnotherSSH

        forks = 5
        offset = 50%
        step = 300

        # The following variables can be overridden in each target section
        greeting = SSH-Latency-Measurement-Sorry-for-this-logmessage
        interval = established
        mininterval = 0.5
        pings = 5
        port = 22
        timeout = 5

        # [...]

        *** Targets ***

        probe = AnotherSSH # if this should be the default probe

        # [...]

        + mytarget
        # probe = AnotherSSH # if the default probe is something else
        host = my.host
        greeting = SSH-Latency-Measurement-Sorry-for-this-logmessage
        interval = established
        mininterval = 0.5
        pings = 5
        port = 22
        timeout = 5

DESCRIPTION

       Latency measurement using SSH. This generates Logfile messages on the other Host, so get
       permission from the owner first!

VARIABLES

       Supported probe-specific variables:

       forks
           Run this many concurrent processes at maximum

           Example value: 5

           Default value: 5

       offset
           If you run many probes concurrently you may want to prevent them from hitting your
           network all at the same time. Using the probe-specific offset parameter you can change
           the point in time when each probe will be run. Offset is specified in % of total
           interval, or alternatively as 'random', and the offset from the 'General' section is
           used if nothing is specified here. Note that this does NOT influence the rrds itself,
           it is just a matter of when data acqusition is initiated.  (This variable is only
           applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)

           Example value: 50%

       step
           Duration of the base interval that this probe should use, if different from the one
           specified in the 'Database' section. Note that the step in the RRD files is fixed when
           they are originally generated, and if you change the step parameter afterwards, you'll
           have to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them. (This variable is only
           applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)

           Example value: 300

       Supported target-specific variables:

       greeting
           Greeting string to send to the SSH Server. This will appear in the Logfile.  Use this
           to make clear, who you are and what you are doing to avoid confusion.

           Also, don't use something that is a valid version string. This probe assumes that the
           connection gets terminated because of protocol mismatch.

           Default value: SSH-Latency-Measurement-Sorry-for-this-logmessage

       interval
           The interval to be measured. One of:

           connect
               Interval between connect() and the greeting string from the host.

           established
               Interval between our greeting message and the end of the connection because of
               Protocol mismatch. This is the default.

           complete
               From connect() to the end of the connection.

           Default value: established

       mininterval
           Minimum interval between the start of two connection attempts in (possibly fractional)
           seconds.

           Default value: 0.5

       pings
           How many pings should be sent to each target, if different from the global value
           specified in the Database section. Note that the number of pings in the RRD files is
           fixed when they are originally generated, and if you change this parameter afterwards,
           you'll have to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them.

           Example value: 5

       port
           Connect to this port.

           Default value: 22

       timeout
           Timeout for the connection.

           Default value: 5
