Description

A problem arises when the gateway IP is available but the network behind the gateway is unavailable, or if alternative IP is unavailable for various reasons not related with the provider network. If monitored first IP and second IP which are outside the network provider this will prevent such problems. If at least one of IPs is available then gateway status is ONLINE, if both IPs unavailable then gateway status is OFFLINE

It would add a lot of complication and also increase the amount of time/processing it would take to notice an upstream failure. Not likely to be worth the effort. Like Phil said, plenty of past discussion in #4354 and #1189 for additional reference/reasoning.
