The Ping Monitor allows you to test the accessibility of your web server over a IP/URL/domain name, via public and private agents.

Once you added a ping monitor for your component, the Anturis agent will start pinging your web server at your customized monitor periods to check if your URL, IP address, and domain name are accessible.
If the server fails to respond, or if it responds with an error or warning status indicating that the web service is not available, Anturis considers the test to have failed. Most often, a failure status is returned by your ping monitor if there is no response from the server within the set timeout.

Adding a Ping Monitor

There are two options for adding a Ping Monitor.
The first option is available if a component is created.
