remember that using pings to sample connectivity to a very busy
cisco router is not a very reliable probe for several reasons.
Returning pings is a low-priority task in the first place, and
they are rate-limited, so if the processor is busy processing
lots of BGP updates and several folks are fribbling with it 
using ping or SNMP, it is less than clear what they will see.
