Seeing Ping sensors already show data in milliseconds, could you please specify what you mean?

Sorry, with "microsecond" precision (for example 0.248 ms)

We use the Windows API call IcmpSendEcho2 which returns the timing in ms precision. Microsecond precision is much more complicated and getting accurate timings on a system with a high load (like a lot of PRTG systems) would be nearly impossible.

For microsecond timing you would need to use specialized tools, sorry.

You can use hrPing or other similar third party applications to do that.
