This video takes a look at a NerveCenter basic device monitoring model and explains how even at the most fundamental monitoring level, NerveCenter approaches network monitoring in a more thorough way.
All management systems do some form of basic device monitoring, typically a simple up/down status check.
Most other management platforms verify up/down status through a simple connectivity test by using ICMP pings to send out an echo request, and listening for an echo reply.
Consider this scenario: Is there a set of network conditions where I could send an echo request and not get a reply, but the device I'm trying to reach is actually functioning properly?
The answer is yes. The device could have a router in front of it that's the real problem, causing the pings to not get there. You are getting a false negative.
Testing connectivity is obviously an important part of monitoring a device, but as this video shows, it should not be your only criteria
