Modify node details

  1. Click the node, and then click Nodes > Node Details.
  2. Review the information about the node, click Refresh to update response time and packet loss.
  3. Ensure the correct information is provided on the Node Details window:
    • To send an e-mail or page, check Send E-Mail/Page notifications for events on this node.
      You must configure your SMTP settings to receive e-mail and page alerts. See Modify Network Monitor settings
    • Poll interval is the frequency with which the node is polled using ICMP.
    • Fast poll interval is the frequency with which the node is polled when packet loss occurs.
      If the device does not respond during the fast poll interval, it is considered down. While in the fast poll interval, it is considered in a warning state.
  4. Click the Icons & Sounds tab, and then specify any customizations to the node icons and sounds used for Active, Warning, and Inactive states.
