[Cerowrt-devel] Turning off the probe blocker

I incidentally got smokeping up and running on a beaglebone black to
monitor latencies better across the whole network at the yurtlab. For
those of you with ipv6, it's currently globally reachable:


There are numerous options (like traceroute, etc) to put into
smokeping, which I'd like to add but haven't wrapped my head around.
Can't get fastcgi to work with it on lighttpd, either.

I have mrtg running on a pi, too, that I will move over to the blacks.
Also have the nifty babelweb utility running on the pi - but the pi
just doesn't have the oomph (nor does it has fq_codel) to do much
more, so...

I had really once hoped to make cerowrt "do everything", but the black
+ debian makes doing "everything" a lot easier when you can easily run
perl and python...

The monitor box is running over a minimum of 3 hops right now before
running across the rest of the mesh network.

... just wish the beaglebone black had a case I could wallmount with
screws rather than velcro...
