I needed a tool at work to monitor one host via ICMP echo request and send a notification if the host is down. I did not find a tool, which I liked, right away and hence - as I am learning Go - I just wrote a tool myself. Glamor is intended to monitor our Icinga host therefore I could not simply use Nagios/Icinga/... itself.There is (currently) no ICMP implementation in Go, so the system's ping command is used instead. If a threshold of packet loss is reached, a simple mail notification is sent via SMTP. The notification is sent only once per host down status, which will reset after a given amount of successful ICMP echo replies.
