If you said “YES!”, then this session is for you, as James Serra will review the many benefits that can be gained by moving your on-prem SQL Server to an Azure® VM (IaaS). He’ll also talk about the many hybrid approaches, so you can gradually move to the cloud. If you are interested in cost savings, additional features, ease of use, quick scaling, improved reliability, and ending the days of upgrading hardware, this is the session for you.

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.
