A brief video outlining how to monitor the ICMP Poller using SevOne.
In this video, we're going to show you how to configure the ICMP poller. Now, if you add the device through the GUI for almost all operating systems, the ICMP poller is enabled and you really don't need to touch it. The ICMP poller is great for up-down ability testing, and there may be occasions where you want to turn it off on certain devices, or configure some of the default settings in terms of packet size, interval, and number of attempts.
You can do all that by first going to the device manager page, and then editing the chosen device. You're going to want to select the appropriate poller, so ICMP. You can configure some of the options I just mentioned here. Now, I should also mention the edit address option whereby you can actually do an ICMP test for multiple IP addresses that have been assigned to that device. That actually searches on the following OID, so all the results returned for this SNMP query are what are used to populate the options here. Maybe getting a little bit deeper into the technical weeds here, but again, if you configured a device to have multiple IP addresses, we are able to accommodate with some flexibility how we should be pinging a given device. As always, any changes you make, you're going to need to save.
In addition to these videos, remember that the Data Appliance NMS User Manual is available through the NMS UI as shown below. Clicking on the question mark at the top right of any page will automatically bring you to the section of the manual that corresponds to the page you are currently on.
