Monitoring devices for network connectivity

Device monitoring lets you regularly monitor the connectivity of any of your managed devices.

Ping settings are specific to the device you've selected. When a device stops responding to a ping (when it goes offline), an alert notification is added to the log on the core server. If you want to be notified with another alert action, such as receiving an e-mail when a device goes offline, you can configure an alert in the core alert ruleset.

To monitor connectivity for managed devices
  1. Click Configure > Device monitoring.
  2. Click Add. Select one or more devices that you want to monitor, and then click Add.
  3. Specify the Ping frequency setting, the number of retries, and the timeout limit.
  4. Click OK.
