Link status shows the last bounce message sent to each server and provides details about the time the message spent between key points in the path. You can use this information to determine why a message has exceeded its maximum acceptable threshold. Also, link properties show the status of notifications sent in response to alerts and whether notifications and repairs have been suspended.
Note The link monitor must have been active for at least the time period specified in the Bounce property page.
Use the General property page to view the results of the last successful bounce message. These values are informational and cannot be changed.
