IPv6

IPv6 support was added in version 3.2

Additional Prerequisites

  • Socket6.pm
  • fping6

    the standard fping will only do IPv4. the fping from fping.com can be compiled to do either v4 or v6, it cannot do both in one binary. you must install one fping for v4 and one for v6.

  • an operating system with IPv6 support.

Configuring

Basically, do nothing.

If the address you specify is an IPv6 address, or resolves to an IPv6 address, IPv6 will be used. There is nothing to configure differently.

IPv4 or IPv6

If you specify a hostname that has both A and AAAA records, by default, argus will try the IPv4 address first, and if it is unreachable, switch to the IPv6 addresses. You can tell argus to use only IPv4, only IPv6, or a preferred order using the ipversion parameter:

        ipversion:      4
        ipversion:      6
        ipversion:      4 6
        ipversion:      6 4
the ipversion parameter was added in version 3.7
