This may seem like a simple question. Hopefully it will have a simple answer.
I run an internet radio station. There are 3 machines.
- Music source client
- Stage server
- Master server (relays the signal from the stage server to our listeners)
Recently there have been some drop outs, I suspect internet quality is to blame.
I want to install this utility on 1 and 2 above to ping a) Google and b) the next machine in the chain every 5 seconds to see who drops what and when.
Not being classically trained, I want to know the below...
Is this best practice? Or will I get in trouble from google or my ISP?
I don't want to get caught in some DDOS defense on some firewall somewhere and cause more issues for myself.
