Continuous pings

I would like to have a continuous pings on 3 servers that are having some disconnections.

Unfortunately the only possibility is every 30sec.

I tried to use multiple pings (30 pings) each 30 sec, but this is not exactly what I would like to achieve.

Do we have a way to send continuously pings to an host and have it graphed ?

Thanks for your support

Thanks for your answer, I'm really surprised that a so basic functionality is not possible...

What should I do to request this as a feature improvement?

Thanks

PRTG can only PING a device with a minumum interval of 30 sec.

If you are in need of pinging a device on a shorter interval, the Continuously Ping Server/Sensor can help you out!

The CPServer pings a list of hosts on a short interval and the sensor reports on the average and total results since its last scan interval.

Setting the sensor to a 30 sec interval will report on any lost pings in the last 30 seconds.
