Which IP SLA monitors except RTT are supported by PRTG?



When using PathEcho or PathJitter Cisco IP SLA monitors, the only statistic that is returned by PRTG is Round Trip Time. I have tried ICMP-Jitter and Path-Jitter operations and no additional channels are produced and no other data (packet loss for example) is available at all.

I've tried standard Jitter and it is recognized properly but I don't get Source>Destination and Destination>Source packet loss statistics. As far as I can tell, PRTG is not able to recognize all SLA types (it doesn't identify the 'type' properly except for jitter when adding the IP SLA sensor)...if this is the case, please identify which IP SLAs are supported.
