Question:

What is the purpose of the NH_POLL_PING_PKTSIZE environment variable?

 

Answer:

The NH_POLL_PING_PKTSIZE environment variable specifies the size in bytes of the ping packet sent by the eHealth system to obtain eHealth latency information.

The default value is 100
Valid Values 0 through 64000.

The size of a ping packet is usually at least 12 bytes. This value can be increased to create ping packets that are closer in size to the systems typical data packets.
