Leave the other options on this tab at their defaults.

Leave all other options on this tab at their defaults.

 

Devices tab:

Select the Devices you want to Ping test from your CatTools Host.

 

E-mail tab:

Set preferences for reporting on this Activity.

 

Options tab:

 

Response timeout (seconds): is the time in seconds that the activity waits until it assumes that the Ping request has failed. The default is 2 seconds.

 

Ping packet send count: is the number of Ping requests the activity sends to each Device each time the Activity runs. The default is 5 packets.

 

Only record ping failures: keeps a record only of failures of the activity. This keeps the Report file to a minimum size, conserving hard-drive space.

 

Log Error if 100% not reported: raises an error if all pings are not 100% successful.
