To query the version and run-time status of a servedat server, ping its DNS name or IP address. If the server is running on a port other than 8080, include that as well.

The fields displayed may vary depending on the server version and configuration.
|Name||Name of the server application.|
|Version||Component version of the server application.|
|Platform||Platform specifier of the server operating system.|
|Clock||Server's current time, expressed in the local timezone of the system running mtping.|
|Clock Skew||Difference between Clock and the local system time. Note that high network latency may cause this to display ±1 even if the clocks are perfectly synchronized. See "System Clock Accuracy" for important information about keeping clocks accurate.|
|Options||When present, this line shows server-wide access restrictions currently in effect:|
|nl||No links: symbolic links are not supported.|
|Load||Number of concurrent transactions currently running, highest value since the last configuration change, the highest value since server startup, and the total number of transactions attempted since startup.|
|Capacity||The maximum number of concurrent transactions allowed, and the number of times transactions have been denied due to this limit being reached.|
|Up Time||Time since the server was started.|
|Config Time||Time since the last configuration change.|
|Idle Time||Time since the last transaction.|
|Errors||Number of server errors, transaction failures, warnings, and transaction rejections since startup. See the servedat Monitoring section for details.|
|Data||The number of bytes transferred in and out since the last configuration change.|
|Bandwidth||The bandwidth consumed incoming and outgoing averaged over the previous minute in bits per second.|
|Drops||The number of datagrams dropped due to bad checksums and due to bad headers.|
Note that a query via mtping does not count as a transaction for the purposes of server capacity or idle.
