Server Connectivity [Tour 10 of 23]
If you just want to check whether or not a server is working you should use the Ping test. Site Vigil will schedule automatic ping tests at regular intervals.As some servers have blocked ping requests you can also use a socket connect on any port to achieve a similar result.
This feature is also very useful for Intranets where a network administrator needs to check that a whole set of different servers are accessible on the internal company network.
The picture shows the measured latency between issuing a ping request and receiving a ping echo response over a day. The server went offline at about 6:30 pm.
