The Ping Discovery Event Monitor scans an IP range that you specify looking for ICMP ping responses from each IP address. It compares the list of systems that it finds with the existing network devices that have already been added to your monitoring configuration. Any new devices are added to the device group that you select.
This event monitor provides the following options:
Enter the IP range that the event monitor will search. You may enter up to a class B range.
Select the device group where the event monitor will add any new devices that it detects.
This event monitor does not require authentication or specific security rights.
