This is the service that goes Ping! (Sorry, Monty Python reference.)
This is displayed when you choose Ping in the Service pop-up menu in
the Test Info pane.
This service will use the standard
ping feature to send
network packets to a remote server and track the response time and
- Domain or IP address
Enter a domain name or IP address to ping, e.g.
Enter the number of packets to send. Sending multiple packets
improves the reliability of the check, as it is more likely to detect
network unreliability. Each packet is sent one second apart, so this
is the total time to perform the check. The default is 10 packets.
Enter the number of bytes to send in each packet. The default
value of 56 bytes is good for most purposes, but sometimes you might
want to increase it to test how well the server responds to a larger
amount, e.g. to test high-capacity fiber networks.
- Failure If: Average more than:
A failure is reported if the average round-trip time for any
of the packets is more than this time, expressed in milliseconds.
- Failure If: Packet loss over:
A failure is reported if more than this percentage of packets
is lost in transit, i.e. is sent but not received back.
