Ping Result details screen - DTX-NSM

The DTX-NSM CableAnalyzers Network Connectivity screen displays the ping results for the listed devices.
 
Notes: 
            Ping results are saved as part of the connectivity results. 
            Since ping requests are low-priority traffic, devices may not respond to all requests. 
  
            
 
To view detailed information about each of the tested devices: 
  
            Highlight the device > press ENTER 
  
            
 
            To save the ping results, press SAVE
 
The following results will display:
 
Ping Result
The name and IP address of the device that was pinged:
  • Gateway
  • IP Address: 10.248.2.1
Replies/Requests
Number of pings sent and received.
 
Min RTT
Time taken for the ping requests to travel to target address and back to tester (Round Trip Time)
 
Avg RTT
Time taken for the ping requests to travel to target address and back to tester (Round Trip Time)
 
Max RTT
Time taken for the ping requests to travel to target address and back to tester (Round Trip Time)
 
RTT Std Dev
The standard deviation of the RTTs. This indicates, on average, how far the RTT values are from the average RTT value.
 
 
Additional information:
To evaluate ping times, you should compare current results with results taken when the network was operating normally. You may encounter destination response failures during the ping request process. Listed below are the most common causes:
  • The destination is not present (turned off, disconnected, or never existed), or presently not operating as an IP host on the network. 
  • The destination answered an ARP request but is administratively prohibited from responding to the Ping request. 
  • There is a network fault, condition, or security setting which is preventing communications from reaching the destination and returning to the DTX-NSM.
