Alarm Configuration
8.4. The Ping-No-Answer Alarm
The Ping-No-Answer Alarm is intended to provide notification when one of the IP
addresses defined via the Ping-No-Answer Reboot feature (described in Section 7.1)
fails to respond to a Ping command. When one of the user-defined IP addresses fails to
answer a Ping command, the RPC can provide notification via Email, Syslog Message
or SNMP Trap.
