That's correct. The plugin hasn't been included with the standard 
distribution, although plugin developers told me it would be 'as soon as 
possible' a couple of months ago. For now it can be found at 
http://devel.op5.se/oss/check_icmp-0.6.tar.gz. It's fairly portable and 
should compile cleanly on just about any platform with a properly 
functioning C-compiler (although some of the options in the makefile may 
require gcc 2.4 or higher).

No. As of version 0.6 it formats perfparse output properly. Please note 
that performance data is only available when checking a single 
IP-address though.
