How to activate path-jitter of IP-SLA on PRTG v8.3?




I've seen "path-jitter" in Cisco IP-SLA is supported in V8.3 and set up the trial version of v8.3 before upgrading our production server, but PRTG v8.3 doesn't automatically pick up the type of operation and only shows the average RTT.

Could you advise if there's any special procedure to activate it or do I need to configure any other lines? We are using IOS 12.4(24)T2 on Cisco 3845 router.

ip sla 133722 path-jitter 10.xx.xx.xx ip sla schedule 133722 life forever start-time now

I've also tried to configure the other type of IP-SLA instances such as VoIP jitter, ICMP jitter, ICMP echo and all the other ones worked fine on the same device. I don't think there's no issue on SNMP. I've also confirmed that the IP-SLA itself seems to be working fine on the router.

This may be possible in the current canary or preview builds of PRTG. Would it be possible for you to install a freeware version of PRTG on a spare PC/Server, switch it to canary/preview-branch and then try it again?
