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
