Best Way to Locate an Issue With Hops



I've ran into a weird issue with a hop heading out my ISP. It's taken a while to locate this and I haven't been able to find a good way to monitor this via PRTG.

Using Traceroute I can see the hops and the entire length of the traceroute, but I haven't been able to find a way to monitor a problem that could be located in one of those hops to the destination.

I'm afraid you would have to add a sensor for each hop.
