Use the Ping Overview dashboard to configure the ping functionality and verify the availability of end points that exist in your virtual environment. The ping functionality is configured at the adapter instance for IP addresses, group of IP addresses, and FQDN. You can view ping adapter details like, latency distribution and packet loss distribution in this dashboard.
Customizations Available for Your Use
For more context, you can add a property widget that lists the selected object properties. Multiple tables can drive the same property widget, but the object type must be the same.
- Latency distribution - You can use this widget to see the objects that are experiencing high latency.
- Packet Loss Distribution – You can use this widget to see the objects that are experiencing high packet loss.
- Ping Targets – You can use this widget to view the list of ping targets grouped by their FQDN. Latency and packet loss information is also displayed for the ping objects.
- Breakdown by Source Initiator – You can use this widget to view the List of ping statistics by the source (ping initiator). You can ping the target from multiple locations, to determine if the issue is network-related or server-related.
