Packet Loss Gauge

This resource displays a linear or radial gauge of the percentage packet loss over the selected node during the current monitoring period. Reported values are updated regularly, on the Polling Interval.

To find out when the next poll is due, go to the Polling Details resource for the node, and check out the Next Poll.

Thresholds

Thresholds specify which part of the gauge is highlighted as warning or critical values. You can change the warning and critical thresholds.

Click Thresholds, and adjust the critical and warning levels for the metric. This change will be applied on all monitored objects.
