    Link Software

    We have 2 sites connected via a 100mb link between each over. How can I detect the "link state" Is there a piece of software I can use to detect that its UP. we are having an issue and we were told it may be the link, but we dont think so.

    Thanks
    - Stuart

    Crude: continuous ping of something the other side

    Elegant: a full solution like Nagios
