Having a unified ticketing and asset management system for all the departments in your company can provide end-users with a seamless experience and make things easier for your IT team. Yet, with different business tasks and objectives, many departments don’t fully understand the capabilities of Web Help Desk and how the software can be customized for effective use in their departments.

The Device.ConnectivityTest.Ping activity allows you to Ping to a selection of devices.


CatTools will Ping each selected Device in turn, and will log any failures to the Report file:



The Ping test is a simple ICMP Echo request, sent from the machine running CatTools to the selected device(s).


It tests the operation of your network between CatTools and the selected device, but only at the IP level. It may or may not be a useful test of your network, or your users' ability to use the network, depending on your specific network design.


The report file provides you with an historical record of the status of the tested devices, which may be useful for later forensic purposes.
