Appearance Functions

Thu Jan 12, 2012 2:05 pm

Hi All,
I'm adding a latency function to the appearance of a server.
Ping time= [array_element(ping(device_property("FirstAddress")),0]

The problem is that this is done from the local dude server and not from the agent.

So I see two options here.

1. Use the ping probe value and display it on the appearance ( I have no idea how to do it).
2. Maybe there is a way in the appearance function to choose which agent to make the action.

Many Thanks.

I would like to revive this old question, because it exactly covers my problem.

Does anyone solved that issue? It is really important to me to see latencies on the map, I am using the same "appearance" way like the original poster, but just with the same problem:
1) I do not know how to show ping times from the probe on the map (would solve the problem, because probe pings are being correctly done by agent set)
2) when using the ping() function, the pings are being done from the dude server itself and I do not know how to choose an agent in this case (probably just not possible for the ping function?)
