This is from:

    def isAlive(host):
        ...
        (success, output) = runLocalCmd(os.path.join(config.Config.scriptsdir, "is-alive") + " " + util.scopeAddr(host))
        ...
        if not success and not config.Config.cron == "1":
            util.warn("host %s is not alive" % host)

which just runs the is-alive script which runs

    ping -c 1 -W 1 host

so, if that is failing you're running a restrictive iptables policy or have disabled icmp?
