Host Availability

This agent will send heartbeat messages (ping requests) to its host, monitoring the presence of the host on the network and the latency of its connection.

Local/Remote Modes

Because of the nature of its work, the agent should only be deployed in local mode.

Supported Versions

The agent can monitor availability of any TCP/IP enabled host, regardless of the architecture or operating system.


The following parameters are available for configuration:
Ping timeout: The maximum number of milliseconds to wait on a ping heartbeat before declaring it a miss
Packet size: The number of bytes in the ICMP packet


The agent will populate the following values:
Response time: Ping response time in milliseconds
Heartbeat misses: The number of times the heartbeat timed out
