Reviewing Monitoring Events

Ping Monitor allows you to review each and every event that has happened while monitoring connection to a remote host. The per host events are available on the Events page of the detailed host statistics within the Statistics view Pic 1. Each entry in the view has a severity icon, a title and a description. From the title, you can understand which event is logged; the description provides you with the detailed message; and the severity icon can be used to quickly understand if the event needs high level of attention.

Host monitoring events

The events in the Statistics view cover all aspects of host monitoring. They state when the monitoring was started and stopped, displaying brief session statistics on stop; they show when the host state or connection quality has changed, and display if there any problems with sending notifications and performing custom actions for the host being reviewed.

Quite often, you do not need to review the detailed list of events for each host, but would like to get to know quickly the host state and/or connection quality changes that took place, without browsing events for each and every host. The events available on the Connectivity Events view are used to solve the task.

From this view, you can always get information only for important host state or connection quality changes, depending on the selected view mode. The view is optimized for displaying the connectivity events only and provides you with an ability to group by event type and/or host.

We hope you'll find it comfortable to review both detailed per host monitoring events and connectivity events.
