I'm trying to find out exactly when this alert is triggered. From the description
”This alert will be raised when a host machine does not respond to a ping request from the SQL Monitor Base Monitor service. When the machine becomes reachable again, the alert will be marked automatically as Ended.” I draw the conclusion that one lost ping triggers the alarm – is that correct? Can that be changed in the xml config file? More importantly can this be changed per monitored Server/instance? The reason I ask is that we have a database cluster connected by a VPN tunnel to the monitoring system and it's not unusual to lose a ping once in a while.
