Create a new synthetic transaction. Using synthetic transactions allows PacketWise to initiate ICMP, web, or other TCP transactions at periodic intervals to verify the availability of critical hosts.
Note: The synthetic transaction feature is not available on PacketShaper ISP models.
synthetic add <interval>[,<repeat>] [<id>]
|<interval>||Number of minutes between issuance of the transaction (the maximum interval is 1440)|
|Number of times to issue the request on the established TCP connection (default is 1; the maximum is 100)|
String that identifies the synthetic transaction; if omitted, PacketWise
will automatically create a unique eight-character ASCII ID for each transaction.
|<url>||Type of transaction to issue, in the following format:
<type> is http, https, icmp, pop3, smtp, ftp, echo, or custom
<host> is the IP address or DNS name of the host
<port> is the TCP port number to connect to; the default varies by type (for example, for http the default is port 80)
<path> is additional information necessary for the request (such as a directory name or a file name)
Additional information about each type:
