In a successful test for the escape system of the Orion space capsule, NASA shows that it works perfectly for the now defunct Constellation program. However, Orion may never get off the ground in that capacity.
I have this Ubuntu Server (12.04.2) which sometimes (once a day for 5 minutes) it's unreachable through zabbix and SolarWinds Orion. I logged into to Orion server and Zabbix server and did a ping test (ping -n 500 192.168.1.1) and it had 0% loss. But Orion and Zabbix often report that it is unreachable and packet loss of Orion goes above 60% (Zabbix-agent is unreachable for 5 minutes).
