I am looking for the best way to monitor internet connectivity in the network, and if possible to create a report with such information. This is only because sometimes we get alerts about websites being down, but when check on them they are working perfectly, and there have been occasions when our internet goes down and as of now there is no way for us to know when this happens.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I would recommend adding a few Ping/HTTP-Sensors that check websites that should never be down (like Google.com, microsoft.com, etc.). Only if those are then all down, together, the internet connection is likely lost.

best regards.
