How to Edit a Ping / ICMP Task

Once you have created a device and are adding or editing a Ping / ICMP Task, you will be prompted to adjust the following settings:



Task Name: Provide a descriptive name for the task so that you would be able to identify the task later among a list of similar tasks.  For example, “ ICMP 15 minute”.

Maximum Connection Timeout (in Milliseconds)  Enter the number of milliseconds the task should wait for a response from the web page before aborting the task and returning an error.  If this is left blank the default timeout for a task is 120 seconds.

Server: enter the server address to be monitored.  This could be the URL or the IP address.

DNS Options: are explained in detail in “DNS Mode Option” article.
