Enter the Hostname/IP Address of the service to ping.
PING is used to verify if a host or IP Address is alive and reachable on a computer network. PING uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) protocol to send a simple echo request and wait for a reply. PING is a good tool for measuring response time.
NOTE: It is not uncommon for a host to be available on certain TCP or UDP ports, yet not respond to ICMP requests. ICMP requests can be dropped at the firewall while allowing requests such as HTTP (TCP 80) to pass through successfully.
