The goal of this example is to use a ping test and use its result as a condition.
The job is “empty”. It still requires something though, so it's filled with a '!'.
The command that is used is ping <ip>.
The output is shown below:
Type escape sequence to abort. Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 220.127.116.11, timeout is 2 seconds: !!!!! Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 5/9/17 ms
This parse template will match specifically on the words “Success rate is” and “percent”, the variable is set which is in between, in this case the digit “100”. The remainder of the line is ignored by using “|*|”
Success rate is <percent> percent |*|
