Too Many Pings+ Small Check Period = Ping Fail?

by Jul 28, 2009

Hi all , i had an issue last month :

-i had 100 machines , each one with the default ping monitor + a custom ping monitor, this means 200 ping monitors in total
-Both default and custom ping monitors where set up with 10 minutes check interval .
-i increased the frequency from 10 to 5 minutes on the custom ping monitors.
-randomly (one or 2 times a week) 20 or 30 ping monitors failed simultaneously and come back OK after few minutes…
-since i deleted the custom ping monitors , the system isnt showing any problems…

Any clues ???
