Setting Default Format Description
poll-interval 1 >= 1 How often do we want to ping the ip (in seconds)

The ping protocol uses the ICMP ECHO request command and reports the state DISCONNECTED if it receives a response that it is not an ECHO REPLY.

The ping protocol doesn’t have a GUI representation. You can of course use the ping protocol in your rules.
