I configured a new operation called 'NEWPING'. The operation's configuration is attached.
Basiclly, it suppose to ping a target and whenever there is a timeout of 2 consecutive pings then raise a threshold and alert (via trap).
I noticed that as soon as the first timeout occures, the source is sending a trap without waiting for the second ping to timeout (as per the operation definition).
My source router is running Cisco Catalyst 6509 Switch with IOS (tm) s72033_rp Software (s72033_rp-IPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(18)SXF13, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1).
This is how it is configured on the device:

I noticed the same operation works just fine using a different source:
