ICMP: packet loss detection

A new option is available for all tests using the ICMP protocol. Indeed, you can now ask our robots to detect if, during the test, some packets are not returned by the remote host.

Carrying out such a test will allow you to know if the network access of your machine is disturbed without having a clear cut.

To take advantage of this new feature, go to the list of availability tests in your Hitflow manager, in the “Monitoring” > “Availabilities” section to edit one of your ICMP tests.
Once in the settings form, you will have the possibility to check an option called “Packet loss“.

Attention, when a packet loss is detected, there is no second test performed by our robots.
