https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=264402 Bug ID: 264402 Summary: net/fping: Avoid ident collisions Product: Ports & Packages Version: Latest Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Only Me Priority: --- Component: Individual Port(s) Assignee: ports-bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org CC: email@example.com Flags: maintainer-feedback?(firstname.lastname@example.org) CC: email@example.com We have a busy nagios server and its not unusual for there to be 200 fping's running simultaneously. Since fping derives the ident it puts in the outbound packet to from the low 16 bits of the process id, we see collisions. Here's a github pull request that fixes this issue: https://github.com/schweikert/fping/issues/206 If I create a patch for the fping port to make this change would you prefer a patch an an optional patch? -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
