Hello everyone,

It appears that the outstanding ping limit (undocumented "-q") parameter
is now defaulting to 16 at NV5.1.  Years ago the release notes stated it
had been increased from 3 to 10, but I haven't seen any mention of it
since then. Can anyone confirm or deny this (ie: Leslie Clark :-)?
I am seeing this by running netmon -a5 and seeing the # elements on
pingWait maxing at 16 (half the net was down at the time).

Aside - anyone know of any good reference material on detailed
functioning/debugging of netmon that you could point me to?

Thanks a lot.
