# IP Route Analysis

Overview

This package aims at monitoring the reachability of a specific IP Address.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to check the reachability of a specific IP Address by:

  • Listing the intermediary IP addresses that can be found on the route to the destination
  • Testing its response time

Requirements

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:

    • ICMP: Between ServicePilot Agent and target IP address
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
    • ServicePilot Agent minimum version: 8.5 installed and configured
