Dear user

We offer a dedicated Ping Jitter sensor: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/ping_jitter_sensor.htm

That sensor allows to get the jitter metric, it is not intended to replace the standard ping sensor. The standard ping sensor can be used to make devices depended on it, using the exclusive auto-acknowledge setting.

Hi, any plan to add Packet loss and Delay information to Ping Jitter sensor? It would help a lot in case UDP port is closed on the firewall and we can't use QoS Round Trip sensor.

Unlikely, but others might have the same need. Only way to find out is to create a feature request :)

Kind regards,
