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

SYNOPSIS
	*** Probes ***

	+Qstat

	binary = /usr/bin/quakestatba #	mandatory
	forks =	5
	game = nexuizs
	mininterval = 0.1
	offset = 50%
	port = 27970
	sourceaddress =	192.168.0.1
	sourceport = 9923-9943
	step = 300
	timeout	= 15

	# The following	variables can be overridden in each target section
	pings =	5

	# [...]

	*** Targets ***

	probe =	Qstat #	if this	should be the default probe

	# [...]

	+ mytarget
	# probe	= Qstat	# if the default probe is something else
	host = my.host
	pings =	5

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

       Make sure to set	your pings to 10, most Quake servers seem to throttle
       after 10	rapid pings.

       Set the game parameter to one of	the valid options to check a different
       type

VARIABLES
       Supported probe-specific	variables:

       binary
	   The location	of your	quakestat binary.

	   Example value: /usr/bin/quakestatba

	   This	setting	is mandatory.

       forks
	   Run this many concurrent processes at maximum

	   Example value: 5

	   Default value: 5

       game
	   What	game type to check, from the -default flag of quakestat

	   Example value: nexuizs

	   Default value: q3s

       mininterval
	   The minimum amount of time between sending a	ping packet to the
	   target.

	   Example value: 0.1

	   Default value: 0.5

       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%

       port
	   The game server port	to check. It can also be overriden by adding
	   :port to the	host parameter in the Target config.

	   Example value: 27970

       sourceaddress
	   The quakestat "-srcip" parameter . From quakestat(1):

	   Send	packets	using this IP address

	   Example value: 192.168.0.1

       sourceport
	   The quakestat "-srcport" parameter .	From quakestat(1):

	   Send	packets	from these network ports

	   Example value: 9923-9943

       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
	   How long a single 'ping' takes at maximum

	   Example value: 15

	   Default value: 5

       Supported target-specific variables:

       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
