ICMP Configuration Options

Table 1. ICMP Configuration Options. The following table describes the fields displayed in the ICMP Configuration Options window.
Field Description

Timeout (milliseconds)

Specifies the maximum number of milliseconds the discovery engine waits for a reply after issuing an ICMP request. The default timeout period is 1000 milliseconds. A higher value allows more time to receive responses from busy devices, but also means more wait time if there is no device with a specified IP address.

Retries (attempts)

Specifies the maximum number of additional times that the discovery engine will send an ICMP request if the first request times out. A device may have been too busy to respond to an earlier ICMP request, but may be able to respond to a subsequent request. If there is no device with the IP address being used, retries will also timeout, so the retry count should be a small number. The default value is 1.
