It's a prometheus exporter pinging hosts in the background. It's been inspired by meshping, but instead of managing targets using a redis db this is using a simple config file. In addition, this tool allows to set a ping frequency per target.
The name peshming is intended as a placeholder until someone comes up with something better.

USAGE: peshming [FLAGS] <config> FLAGS: -h, --help Prints help information -v, --verbose Be verbose (you can add this up to 4 times for more logs).

There's two endpoints available:
/metrics, which serves the metrics
/health, which should always return a 200 status code
