Attribute that defines whether the agent sends a broadcast ping before it retrieves the received packet statistics. This attribute is used when Mii is not set and no network hosts are specified.
If the value of this attribute is 1, the agent retrieves received packet statistics from the netstat command and compare them with previously stored values. The agent sends a broadcast ping to the network only if the packet count remains unchanged.
If the value of this attribute is 0, the agent sends a broadcast ping before it checks the network statistics.
