NAGIOS plugin to perform an arping check for hosts that block ping (use case: monitoring Alexa/Echo Dots).

The message output and performance metrics exactly mirrors the standard check_ping plugin, for seamless replacement operation :)
See github page for more info: https://github.com/SpoddyCoder/check_arp_ping.sh

Usage:

check_arp_ping.sh {HOST} {WARNING_RTA_THRESHOLD} {CRITICAL_RTA_THRESHOLD} [{WARNING_PL_THRESHOLD} {CRITICAL_PL_THRESHOLD} {NUM_PINGS}]

Host & RoundTripAverage thresholds are required (ms)
PacketLoss thresholds default to 20,80 if not specified (%)
NUM_PINGS defaults to 5

Example output:

ARPING OK - Packet loss = 0%, RTA = 38.1782 ms
Performance Metrics
label value warn crit unit min max
rta 38.1782 500 1000 ms 6.181 155.576
