Hi Cem,

We're working on network health monitoring for inclusion in the next release (Fuerte). ("we" being the ROS SIGs for IPC and multirobot)

It would be helpful to know more about your use case: what transport statistics you think would be useful, and what nodes would modify behavior as a result.

Subject: [ros-users] Transport statistics?

Does ROS have a built-in API that collects running transport statistics? I want to know how many messages are lost as a proxy for the quality of the communications link, so I can adapt to worsening communications conditions.  I'd like it if the API was available in Python, but I can work on top of C++ if necessary.
