Testing reachability to host of interest before making alarm visible

Hi, I want to do what it seems very simple thing:  on arrival of snmpget alarm, test access to the host of interest using ping before making snmpget alarm visible.  I have pretty much AO profiles worked out, I am just struggling with LUA script.


Is there any way to issue five or more ping commands to net_connect probe via nimbus.request call (or any other way to check connectivity to host of interest)?  Note that I can't directly test ping from main NAS as we run distributed hub architecture to support multiple clients.


Thanks in advance.
