How PeerMonitor works

How does PM work? Here's a brief rundown

  • Load the config file descibing hosts and options
  • Resolve any hosts using DNS
  • Ping all hosts every N seconds
    • Initialise Winsock
    • Create an ICMP file handle
    • Send an ICMP type 8 echo request (of "Echo this")
    • Wait for a reply (ICMP type 0 message)
    • Mark the button red, green, or orange (if the timeout expires)
  • If one of the required hosts has gone over the mail threshold, send an email
  • If one of the required hosts is red, make a sound
