GENEOS UNIVERSAL Net Ping Plug-in monitors network response times by sending ping (ICMP echo request) messages on a regular basis and waiting for the echo reply.
This Plug-in was originally designed to verify that GL secondary servers were kept in sync with their primaries, and is therefore limited to only two host addresses.
The UNIVERSAL Net Ping Plug-in produces a single view.
|Host||The name or IP address of the hosts to monitor.|
|State||The state of the host - "Up", "Unknown", "Unreachable" or "Timed Out".|
|RoundtripTime||The elapsed time (in ms) between sending the ping message and receiving a reply.|
This plug-in monitors the turnaround time on a "ping" request to another TCP/IP enabled device.
Note: Only the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or resolvable computer's host name can be passed as name variable to Net ping plug-in. This plug-in does not allow IP address to be used in names.
