Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Connection availability

Whether the connection to this port is available


An availability problem can be caused by different factors – e.g., the server process may not be up, a network problem may exist, or there could be a configuration problem with the DNS server.

Connection time

Time taken (in seconds) by the server to respond to a request.


An increase in response time can be caused by several factors such as a server bottleneck, a configuration problem with the DNS server, a network problem, etc.
