telegraf: add ping for default gateway(s)
It would be nice if telegraf plugin could generate config lines for pinging default gateway.
there's a minor issue of finding a ping implementation that works with telegraf

The current ping plugin works well for pinging external IPs, but it would be really nice if the local gateway(s) were a special case that collected data from dpinger. There's a forum question  discussing doing just that. There's also a Github Gist  for the implementation being talked about in that thread. I don't write any python, so I can't assess that Gist, but I've been using it on my home firewall for a couple months and, with the exception of the hiccup when pfSense's python version changed, I haven't seen any side effects.
Is there any chance of getting something like that added to the telegraf package?
