Status: The current status of the Ping test. This item can display the status messages shown in the able below:
Packets Out:  The number of packets sent by the Ping test.
Packets In:  The number of return packets received from the target host. To be considered on time, return 
packets are expected back before the next packet in the sequence of Ping packets is sent. A count of the 
number of late packets appears in parentheses to the right of the Packets In count. 
In the example that follows, a Router is sending Ping packets to another host, which responds with return Ping 
packets. Note that the second return Ping packet is considered to be late because it is not received by the 
Router before the third Ping packet is sent. The first and third return Ping packets are on time.
