In our process of finding a 'sweet spot' for device monitoring that will give a better idea if a system is actually 'down' I am looking into the HELP file and see a section stating:
Ping frequency: Control when and how the ping operation occurs. These settings can be applied to each device individually.
Ping every: Schedules a periodic ping at the specified minute interval.
Schedule daily at: Schedules a daily ping at a specific time.
Retries: Specifies the number of ping retries.
Timeout: Specifies the number of seconds until ping retries will timeout.
I am not sure if this is, in fact, true .. can anyone shed some light on this?
Is this saying that I can define the ping frequency on each device, if I so choose? This would be helpful if so, because we have some systems that are rebooted nightly and I can change their alerts if they dont come back up after a certain threshold ... tell me it's true!
I am afraid I dont see any way under the usual Console Configure Device Monitoring Settings to set different alerts for different devices...
You can do this however via the Server Manager Console if you have that installed... Look under the Actions Tab for Device Monitoring settings...
