Can I use hrPING with PRTG?



Hi Paessler,

I have a requiement that needs me to check latency numbers that are less than 1ms.

There is a freeware replacement for PING called hrPING by cFos Software GmbH -- http://www.cfos.de

Is there a way that I can get PRTG to use hrPING rather than PING to allow me to measure latencey down to a microsecond?

Thank You Peter Venardos

Dear Peter,

you could try using the hrping.exe as a custom exe sensor in PRTG.

best regards.
