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