Seems like rugby XPi ping should have a /bounce or /search refinement. If if does'nt get to the first server it i'll try to go through a list of alternates. Likewise if some threshhold metric is reached on the ping-ed Xpi server it can tell the pinger to go ping some others. The ping table format might include some weighting value of where to go. The weighting could then be adjusted by each node in a rugby network based on hops or some other criteria.. make object! [ r.1: [url weight] r.2: [url weight] etc.. ] Perhaps this doesn't belong inside rubgy itself, and its not strictly 'ping', but I can easily imagine distributed services needing a lot of redundacy support to be trully user friendly, and that means optimizing which this extends to. ./Jason
