Re: Please add documentation for ping-timeout added in 6.43

I think it is like this: after boot, the router first waits for no-ping-delay before doing anything. To give other devices time to initialize and make a connection. Then, it starts pinging at an interval of ping-timeout/6. So, one ping every 10 seconds for the default ping-timeout of 60s. When no p...

Re: Watchdog biting on an unreliable connection - queue issue

My personal view (I'm sure many around here will disagree) is that ICMP with so many network admins (and "admins") blocking it is inherently unreliable. Thus it's unfit to depend upon for device watchdog unless you control all devices involved. E.g. it is probably fine to use pings against some oth...
