Description

Mentioned in this thread: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,65452.0.html
In sites with single WAN, I still put a realistic gateway monitoring IP (e.g. Google 8.8.8.8) so I can see what the WAN performance is like. By, like the OP in the thread, I don't want apinger/pfSense to take any action at all based on the monitored stats (latency, loss, even member down).

Feature #3151 Disable gateway monitoring actions

without disabling gateway monitoring.

This allows the user to continue to monitor the gateway with dpinger, so
they can see how it is performing, but for the system not to take any
real action if the latency/loss exceeds the given limits.

A typical use case for this would be on a single-WAN system. There is no
failover option, so there is no point taking any real action when the
latency/loss is high. Having stuff try to failover (and stop/start
stuff...) is just disruptive.

In ths case the use could have disabled monitoring completely, but then
they get no feedback abut gateway performance.

Been working for me, but it would be good to get some feedback from anyone else who has tried/tested this.

Works here, too. Gateway status shows it going up/down but no actions are taken when it transitions.
