Ping Latency in NNM for Non-SNMP devices
I'd like to threshold latency between our NNM host and a non-snmp node. i thought it would be as simple as creating a node group for the non-snmp device and configuring ICMP response time threshold in Monitoring Configuration>Node Settings. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
All my searching has pointed to needing IPSLA set up or Ping Latency Pairs but these both require a managed snmp device. In Sitescope it was as simple as a deploying a ping monitor and setting a threshold.
Am i missing a trick here?
Thanks in advance.

yes, NNMi can't monitor non-SNMP nodes response time.
network latency specifics is that it occurs in both directions, can be monitored one-way from source to destination (SD) and opposite DS (what's why SNMP and iPSLA are needed) . Both way latency is round-trip-time (RTT). In case RTT is good for you I'd suggest iRA (part of iSPI QA). You can run iRA ICMP probes from NNMi server to non-snmp nodes and get RTTmetric.
P.S. you might want to resister Enhancement request for NNMi to enable collection or ICMP response time of non-snmp nodes.
