Hello,

well, you could use Ping-Sensors for a start.

Thank you, but ping sensors tell us if there is connectivity, and are you referning to the sensor in Various Servers

In older version 6, there was latency monitoring but am not able to find this now

I find the QoS sensor but its available only probe devices

Thank you Cheers...

The 'Latency Monitoring' in PRTG 6 was actually Ping Sensors (from the PRTG 6 Manual: "In order to perform latency monitoring PRTG sends an “ICMP echo request” (also known as PING) to the device and records the time it takes to receive the answer (“ICMP echo answer”)."). And if you look at the numbers, i.e. response times, from your ping sensors, you will see the latency.
