Gateway Testing

Available since: v10.1

Overview

Gateway testing gives the ability to define a generic _gateway_ target that the agent translates locally to its default gateway. The remote worker agents test the wired gateway if it is connected via Ethernet, otherwise, they test the wireless gateway if it is connected via WiFi. The network agents can test both wired and wireless gateways simultaneously depending on how the target is configured.

Note: Only ping tests can be added to targets using gateway testing; DNS, HTTP, Traceroute, and Path Analysis are disabled.
