if the server get the ping response on the ip only, or both.
- ability for the customer to decide if they want to receive the alerts by email, sms, or not.
- ability to setup different ping verification intervals : 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, etc...
- ability to setup port based monitoring like SSH 22 pop 110 intervals : 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, etc...
IP address which you wish to monitor. To add an IP address to the

- TCP indicates that the monitor is using one of the Monitor Scripts. See 'Monitor Scripts' in Setup & Admin for details.
- module indicates that a Device Module is being used

Only applicable for TCP monitors, this field shows the Monitor Script being used.
Max Packet Loss
