Ping monitor

Ping monitors work the same way the ping command does on a computer. If the host doesn't respond to the ICMP packets sent by ping, an incident is created, and the current on-call person or the entire team is alerted.

Creating a ping monitor:

  • Go to MonitorsCreate monitor.
  • Change Alert us when the host above selection to Doesn't respond to ping.
  • Enter your host (IPv4 or IPv6 address) in the Host to monitor input.
  • Click Create monitor.
