Ping command after VM starts

Posted June 26, 2014 3.2k views

I have a VM in SGP1.
Everytime when it starts I can see this:

1245 ? S 0:00 ping -c 20
1246 ? S 0:00 ping -c 20

Why do you DigitalOcean run these commands from my VM??? What else do you run at start?

root@sg1:/etc# cat rc.digitalocean


This is an autogenerated script made during the imaging process

we ping out on bootup to trigger correct port mapping.

You can remove this, but we don’t recommend it. See our FAQ.

ping -c 20 &>/dev/null &
ping -c 20 &>/dev/null &

Is it so difficult to post a link to your FAQ?
