Hi Gary,


sfPing does not use the ICMP protocol. What sfPing does it to start a daemon and to call the sfPing() method in a selected component (by default it will do it in the remote daemon). My immediate guess is that you are having some problems with your network configuration. RMI is quite sensible to problems with DNS/DHCP. Have you tried to see if  “nslookup” between your machines works properly or if it takes a long time?

Hey All,

When using sfPing to ping a daemon within my local network it takes approx 1-2 mins to get a response, yet the reply is said to have only taken <1 second. Any why this is so?

This is also the case with deployment. ICMP ping works properly.

Many thanks,
