Good afternoon,

Does PRTG current support a way to report the latency and change over time of a trace route's hops with a single sensor? I'm looking for something along the lines of pingplotter. Any information would be helpful.

Thanks, Kirisame

At this time we do not have anything like this but you could build yourself a custom sensor that would take the values of the traceroute and graph them for a specific route. The reason we don't have a sensor like this is that if the route changes or adds another hop, then the old channels cannot change to reflect this as channels cannot be deleted once created. You can see more information about how to structure the output of custom sensors under Setup->PRTG API.

Thanks for your quick response Greg, I'll look into a custom sensor and see if it can deliver what we need.
