Dpinger fills log with sendto errors when VPN is down
I have configured a tinc VPN Interface and I have a Gateway on that connection. If the remote host goes down (meaning that it disconnects from tinc) I am seeing thousands of
dpinger MyGW x.x.x.x: sendto error: 64
entries in the log, which cause the important and useful entries to disappear. As there are 2 of these entries per second it doesn't make any sense to increase the log file size because even the biggest log file will start overwriting itself after a short time. dpinger should implement some kind of throttling of messages, like for example combining various messages into a "message repeated x time" or it should not show these messages at all.

We do not maintain dpinger, if you want to suggest a change to dpinger, raise it on their bug tracker: https://github.com/dennypage/dpinger/issues
Also, the logging changed on 2.5.0, so it's possible it's not even an issue there since the logs are no longer circular, but rotated.
