One of NMIS's main features is that it pings all nodes and maintains a reachability metric which includes response time and ping loss.  PING or (Packet InterNetwork Groper) is very powerful for network management and often highly underrated.


For more details about NMIS and fping read NMIS8 and fping or just ping.

The ping timeouts are configured in the NMIS Configuration file Config.nmis.  You can edit this from the NMIS GUI using the menu option "System -> System Configuration -> NMIS Configuration".
