What does the Dashboard Monitor?

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
Measures the roundtrip time taken to discover a DHCP server and obtain a lease from it. The lease is then released after the operation.

DNS (Domain Name System)
Measures the time required to send a DNS request and receive a reply. If a hostname is specified, the operation queries for an IP, and vice versa.

Echo
Measures the time taken to send an ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) message to a destination and receive a reply.

FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
This probe checks its configuration to determine if a reboot is needed and performs the reboot automatically.

HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol)
Measures the round trip time taken to connect and access data from a HTTP server.

Jitter
Measures the delay, delay variance, and packet loss in a network by generating synthetic UDP data. The operation sends a certain number of packets (specified by the “Packets” field), each of a certain size (specified by the “Packet size” field), a certain number of milliseconds apart. Requires a target which supports Cisco IP SLA agents.
