    Thanks. I'll let it log for a day or so then I'll poke around some more.

    Thanks for posting this, because it reminded me that UltraLog has a syslog feature.

    I am new to PFSense and have pointed it to the UltraLog syslog server. I don't find much information on dpinger. Is there any other configuration for dpinger required other than just leaving gateway monitoring enabled?

    pfSense WAN Monitoring via Syslog and UltraLog3 HSPI

    I thought I would share how I am able to trigger a HomeSeer event based on the dpinger output from my pfSense router. This took me less than 5 minutes to setup.

    The HomeSeer event will trigger whenever the pfSense dpinger WAN monitor sends an Alarm or Clear event. The regular expression will capture the values and place them into the HomeSeer Global Variables so they can be used in scripting or within an e-mail.

    Requirements:
    • HomeSeer3
    • UltraLog3 HSPI
    • UltraSMTP3 HSPI (optional)
    • pfSense Router configured to send syslog output to UltraLog3


    HomeSeer Event:
    Event Name: pfSense WAN Monitoring

    Trigger: UltraLog3: Syslog Match
    IF Syslog MsgTag starts with dpinger
    AND IF Syslog MsgContent Regular Expression:
    Code:
    WAN_DHCP\s+(?'ipaddress'\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+):\s+(?'status'Alarm|Clear)\s(?'type'\w+)\s(?'latency'\d+).+?loss\s(?'pktloss'\d+)%
    Then:
    UltraSMTP3: Send an Email
