The Device Status report provides a summary of device status based on ICMP and/or SNMP. Entuity sends an ICMP ping to the management IP address of managed devices (every two minutes by default). Devices that respond are considered reachable, whilst those that do not respond (after the set number of retries) are considered unreachable.
For information on how Entuity determines uptime and reachability, please see this article.
