I have a fairly large number of ping rules that test various devices across the Internet. I am getting alerts from time to time that the devices are not responding. However, I am very confident that the devices are indeed working properly. I bumped up the number of retries and this has helped the problem, but now I am testing 6 times with 3 minute intervals and the alarms are still happening from time to time. The alarm will go off and then the system will recover within a minute or so.
Can you tell me if the ping response wait time is something that can be adjusted (assuming this is the problem - a slow link causing the pings to fail)?
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
