Configuring service level agreement objects

The Service Level Agreement (SLA) objects are used to monitor the availability of a particular IPInternet protocol site. By creating a SLA object, you indicate which IP site to monitor. The Exinda appliance will send one ICMPInternet Control Message Protocol ping every 10 seconds to the IP address. You can specify the ping packet size to use. You can also specify when an alert will be triggered by specifying the ping latency threshold and the duration that the ping latency threshold was exceeded. An alert is triggered when the latency of the SLA site exceeds the latency threshold for longer than the specified duration.
