Description

The addition to kill states when a WAN goes down is going to create fallout in scenarios where it needn't. Especially with single WAN setups. Responsiveness of monitor IPs can be flaky, and monitoring doesn't matter for single WAN setups. The state killing causes problems for single WAN users who have flaky monitor IPs, which is going to be a major regression for likely many single WAN users.

Ticket #911. Provide an option under system->advanced->misc to disable killing states when a gateway goes down. Possibly on 2.1+ this might be made an option specific for each gateway!

Can someone please confirm that when apinger detects a monitor IP as being down, provided there aren't any load balancers set up it won't kill the states? I have a setup where I have 2 Internet connections however they aren't used in a failover/load-balanced fashion.

Thanks
