check network response times

Issue #718 resolved
Ulrich Windl created an issue

Currently the result of network PING is binary: Either the host responded within timeout, or not. However monit has the response time in the status display already, so why not allow querying the response time value? For example one might trigger a warning if PING response times are significantly higher than average. Similar could apply to any network connectivity test.

    Need this feature too. Have a backupline with much higher pingtimes. So I could check if backupline is used, or other problems exists.... Looking forward for implementation....

    Fix Issue #718: Add support for response time monitoring to TCP/UDP ports, unix sockets and ping. Example for ping and port test: if failed ping responsetime < 50 ms then alert if failed port 443 protocol https and responsetime < 50 ms then alert
