NAME
       Smokeping::probes::NFSping - NFSping Probe for SmokePing

SYNOPSIS
	*** Probes ***

	+NFSping

	binary = /usr/local/bin/nfsping	# mandatory
	blazemode = true
	hostinterval = 1.5
	mininterval = 0.001
	offset = 50%
	pings =	20
	step = 300
	timeout	= 1.5

	# [...]

	*** Targets ***

	probe =	NFSping	# if this should be the	default	probe

	# [...]

	+ mytarget
	# probe	= NFSping # if the default probe is something else
	host = my.host

DESCRIPTION
       Integrates NFSping as a probe into smokeping. The variable binary must
       point to	your copy of the NFSping program.

       NFSping can be downloaded from:

       <https://github.com/mprovost/NFSping>

       In blazemode, NFSping sends one more ping than requested, and discards
       the first RTT value returned as it's likely to be an outlier.

VARIABLES
       Supported probe-specific	variables:

       binary
	   The location	of your	nfsping	binary.

	   Example value: /usr/local/bin/nfsping

	   This	setting	is mandatory.

       blazemode
	   Send	an extra ping and then discard the first answer	since the
	   first is bound to be	an outlier.

	   Example value: true

       hostinterval
	   The nfsping "-p" parameter, but in (possibly	fractional) seconds
	   rather than milliseconds, for consistency with other	Smokeping
	   probes. This	parameter sets the time	that nfsping  waits between
	   successive packets to an individual target.

	   Example value: 1.5

       mininterval
	   The nfsping "-i" parameter, but in (probably	fractional) seconds
	   rather than milliseconds, for consistency with other	Smokeping
	   probes. This	is the interval	between	pings to successive targets.

	   Example value: 0.001

	   Default value: 0.01

       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%

       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: 20

       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

       timeout
	   The nfsping "-t" parameter, but in (possibly	fractional) seconds
	   rather than milliseconds, for consistency with other	Smokeping
	   probes.

	   Example value: 1.5
