You can be alerted on latency by creating a Ping monitor for the devices on the network where your websites are hosted. You will define the threshold for that monitor based on what is an acceptable threshold for latency. Once the monitor is created, you can then create an alert for that monitor. Hope this helps; let me know if you need more detail.
Anyways if this way it helps reaching you then solves the purpose. Thanks a lot for replying to my thread.
Actually we have configured ping for all the devices we have added in IP Monitor hence the servers where the websites hosted also have Ping monitor but as far as I know it only gives Test Duration timing that we can set which as far as I understand will be IP Monitor will keep hitting the server to check if its alive or not. But what I am looking for is I want to define certain threshold like if this server’s latency exceeds from lets say 100ms then it should warn and if its above 200ms then it considers as failed.
So do you think providing such threshold values in the Ping Test duration parameters will serve the purpose? Right now my parameters are like this:
Max Test Duration: 60 Seconds
Delays between Tests While up: 5 Seconds
Warn : 5 Seconds
Down: 5 Seconds
Lost: 5 Seconds
Accumulated Failures per Alert: 3
Maximum Alerts: 5
So can you suggest how can I change the above parameters t serve my purpose also please suggest if I have given wrong values in any of the parameters then the recommended ones so I can change them.
Thanks a lot,
After further investigation, you are correct; the latency metric isn't configurable. The ping monitor will wait 4000 msec for a response and marks the monitor down if not received in that amount of time. Although ping is generally a good measure for latency, ipMonitor doesn't use it that way. The ipMonitor ping monitor is just going to give you up/down status.
