    Device Ping Collection

    Use this task to schedule ping tests between two sets of routers or devices. Results of the SNMP collection are saved to the directory /u/wandl/data/ping/[date], where [date] is the date of the collection using the format yymmdd, with yy as the two character year, mm the two character month, and dd the two character day. Device Ping Collection task requires the source node to be in the live network (/u/wandl/data/.network). If not, the task will execute with an OK message but no data will be saved. View resulting web reports from the IP/MPLSView Web Interface, Performance Management > Network Performance > Ping.
