Agent response time is different than expected using ICMP

Overview

The Agent response time is different than expected using ICMP.

Environment

All SAM versions

Detail

ICMP is a low level messaging protocol. Because of its simplicity, it is not possible to accurately record the same response time values using a different protocol. For example: An agent node reports a response time in the range 490-850 ms, but typical ICMP response time is about 150 ms.
