    Description

      It would be nice to have dedicated IPv6 simple checks - to have the possibility to monitor ipv6 and ipv4 in parallel on a host.

      Just add a dedicated flag to every simple check - example:

       icmppingsec[<target>,<packets>,<interval>,<size>,<timeout>,<mode>,<protocol>] 
      

      The value of <protocol>" might be:

      • v6: use ipv6 only, if agent interface is configured to a ipv4 ip fail item, if agent interface is configured to dns use AAAA record
      • v4: use ipv4 only, if agent interface is configured to a ipv6 ip fail item, if agent interface is configured to dns use A record
      • ipv4prefer: use ipv4 over ipv6, if using a dns name
      • ipv6prefer: use ipv6 over ipv4, if using a dns name
      • ....

      Further hints:

      • there might be also other types items which should distinguish ipv6 and ipv4
      • If choosing "dns" as agent interface in the host configuration, it might be useful to have the possibility configure a preference or a dedicated type of network connectivity
