I've just started using BackupPC in the last few days and it is working quite
well for me. However, the first full backup of two of my T1 hosts did not
start due to a "too slow" ping error. I guess the ping happened to take
place during a burst of other traffic, because average ping times were
I made the attached change to CheckHostAlive to read the average ping time
from the output instead of just the first time=xxx. This allows a PingCmd
with -c greater than 1 to be useful.
I don't know how portable this is (I'm running FC3), and the regexp could
probably be shortened, but it works.
Hope this is helpful. Thanks!
