PING monitors work the same way the ping command works on a computer.
If the host doesn't respond to the ICMP packets sent by PING, an incident is created and the current on-call person or the entire team is alerted.

To create a PING monitor:
  • Go to Monitors β†’ Create monitor
  • Change Alert us when the host above selection to Doesn't respond to ping
  • Enter your host (IPv4 or IPv6 address) in the Host to monitor input
  • Click Create monitor
