Ping between probe and some host

When i add a Ping sensor, it measures ping latency between the server and the remote probe. But i'd like to add a ping sensor to the probe, that makes pings to some other host, which is set in the sensor settings. Also i should be able to plot the ping values like with the normal ping sensor. So how can i do this? Thanks.

custom-sensor ping sensor

Hello,

I'm sorry but the concept in PRTG is always to have the target as the device in PRTG. So add the 'other host' as a device under the probe and then add a normal ping sensor to it.

best regards.
