Template for PING (Slowest), want average, not maximum

I current have a list embedded in a map that shows a report for top ten slowest pings (based on the PING (Slowest)) template.

Is there a way to make this display based on the average ping (I send 10 groups of ten pings for each sensor) instead of the maximum ping?

When it sorts based on maximum ping, one slow ping out of the 10 can put the sensor in the top ten list even though the average for that sensor might be much much lower. This ends up pushing sensors with generally good response times to the top of the list while obscuring sensors that have consistently worse ping times.

ex, a sensor with average/max/min, 5/800,1 will make the list while a sensor with 120/150/100 wil not, even though it is much slower on average

average maps ping prtg slowest

The Top 10 Slowest Ping and Top 10 Fastest Ping lists are calculated from the sensors' primary channel. For sensors that are configured for multiple pings, the primary channel is the average value of the last ping series.

So, the Last Value column in the Top 10 ping lists always shows the data from a ping sensor's primary channel:

  • The average out of the last ping series for ping sensors configured with multiple ping
  • The last result for ping sensors configured with single ping

In the list, ping sensors with single and multiple ping are mixed. To get a list of sensors with average ping only, please configure all ping sensors for multiple ping.
