Thanks, I was thinking of doing something similar, but this is a bit more elegant.
Cheers,
Pierrick

Without knowing some more more details. If you have written the driver support you can always restart a epicsTimer when you receive valid data. 

Then when the timer expires, have it set a PV associated with this loss of comm.

Hi,
I have a field device connected via ethernet to a soft ioc (v7 and
sl7.6).  The device
loses communication (we're still waiting for a firmware fix).  In the
meantime, is
there some way to configure the alive record, or something like it, to
monitor this
connection?
Thanks,
Pierrick
