How to globally edit PING monitor timing (to 30 seconds)

  • IPMonitor uses “monitors” in order to test a machine’s status for different components.
  • The PING monitor is setup to ping every 30 seconds. If that fails it will test again in 30seconds. If that fails then the status goes into a “Down” state which fires off emails. It will continue to ping every 30 seconds for a period of 300 seconds (5 minutes).
  • In order to change the PING times for all servers:
  • Log into IPMonitor and click on Devices > All Managed Devices
  • Click on any server and then click on Edit > Mass Edit > Monitor Properties
  • Change from Group to Property and click where it says Click Here to Select a Property
