With [major competitor's] ping reporting feature I get an email alert for *every* ping failure. Since it's normal to occasionally fail ping (busy network etc) my Inbox was constantly flooded with nuisance alerts. The way you have it implemented I only get the email alert if there is a real problem that needs my attention.
