Monitoring solution at the router level

    I need to monitor my internet connection by pinging some specific ip.

    Currently I have a simple script which redirects ping output to some text file.
    I then can import and chart this data.

    Obvious disadvantage is the script runs on a PC, which have to be on all the time.
    So it would be ideal to run this monitoring on the router.

    I'm currently running Tomato (stock) on a WRT54G
    I have a NAS to which I could define a CIFS for storing logs
    Tomato scheduler doesn't fit - lowest schedule you can set is 1 minute
    Maybe some sort of daemon, but here my (limited) knowledge ends.

    Sounds like a common thing, and I dont want to reinvent anything. Do you have any idea on how I could do it?

    thanks
