I'm trying to tighten up my server down monitoring rule. Is there somewhere I can go to see when the polling actual begins and completes (to the second) so that I can test my trigger action timing?
I want to down a test server immediately after my 120 second poll completes to get a worst case scenario of how long it will take for my alert to come through.
I suggest you install Wireshark on your Orion server, start monitoring the traffic with it before your poller starts, start the poller, and watch when the pings start flowing. You would be wise to enter a filter before starting Wireshark though, something along the lines of:
ip host x.x.x.x and icmp
