Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Help with script, shutdown if no ping responce Post 302156127 by ringofsteel on Monday 7th of January 2008 10:59:10 AM
Old 01-07-2008
I have a unix machine which is on a UPS with only about 15mins battery life, what i would like to happen is the unix machine shutdown safely if the power fails. The way i want to do it, would have the unix machine ping my cable modem every 20 secs, which is not on the UPS, so if the ping was to have no responce the modem would probably be off, which means the power would have failed.

I would like the unix machine to shutdown if it cant contact the cable modem 3 times in a row via ping.
