Node-to-Node Tests (24-Hour History)

A graph is displayed for each node-to-node test included in your Personalized Report that failed in the previous 24 hours. Information about the test is listed above the graph:

Test name.

IP addresses or DNS names of source and destination devices.

Node-to-node test type.

Statistics collected for the test type.

The Y axis of each graph:

Adjusts to the maximum value to be displayed.

Displays tick marks at intervals of 40 (the unit of measure is displayed in the legend).

The number of values plotted on the graph should match the number of statistics listed above the graph. For example, for a Data Jitter test, the following three statistics could be listed above the graph: Average Latency, Source to Destination, and Destination to Source. Correspondingly, three values should be plotted on the graph.

Note If not all expected values are plotted on a graph, the most likely reason is that one or more values are very small in comparison to the maximum value. For example, for the values 250, 2, and 1, the smaller values, 2 and 1, will not be plotted.
