Ping (ICMP Echo)

Knowledge Front’s ping monitoring is done by sending ICMP echo requests from several different locations on a configurable frequency. By performing the test from several different locations false alerts are minimized and a better base average is formed.

Based on a configurable number of failures the system will alert IT personnel by SMS, voice call, or e-mail.
