What are the default vlaues for the ping settings and scanning interval within a latency sensor?



Since changing all the values for our monitored objects we have started to see packet loss and unreachable nodes intermittantly.

Can you tell me what the default values for the ping setting and scanning interval are for a latency sensor?

the default for the Ping Count is 1. The scanning interval is by default set to be inherited from the device/groups above. In those we have a default of 60s set for the scanning interval.

best regards.
