One of the simplest and most widely used methods for keeping an eye on our network is called Ping monitoring. In this blog post, we’ll break down the concept behind it and explain its significance in straightforward terms so even beginners can grasp its importance. So, without any further ado, let’s start!
What is Ping?
Before we delve into Ping monitoring, let’s first understand what “ping” means in the context of networking. Ping is a network utility used to test the reachability of a device or a host on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. It measures the round-trip time it takes for a small data packet to travel from your computer or device to the target and back.
Think of it as a simple “hello” or “are you there” message that is sent from one device to another to check if the destination device is active and responsive. The response from the destination device indicates that the connection is active, and the round-trip time gives an idea of the network’s responsiveness.
