The simple solution is to set the "number of PINGs" of the PING sensor to 20, 50 or 100.

Or you can also use the QoS (Quality of Service) sensor to monitor the quality of your connections.

This sensor uses UDP packets (PINGs only use ICMP) and can monitor

  • Jitter in ms according to RFC 3550
  • Packet delay variation (PDV) in ms according to RFC 3393
  • Lost packets in %
  • Out-of-order packets in %
  • Duplicated packets in %

Hello,

this can simply be done with Ping Sensors, by setting their Ping Count higher than 1.

best regards
