in earlier Debian versions there was a network monitoring tool called tkinet. It did create a network map and it pinged continuously configured resources. When something did not work, the resource in the map has changed colour/issued a warning.

What tool can be used in debian to create a map like that? I was looking for something like tkinet, but I was not successful.
