If you wanted to this, you would have to create a custom sensor to either run a ping or something like that and have it return either a 0 or 1 for a value to PRTG. This way PRTG would treat the 1 or 0 as a value and graph it. You can read more about custom sensors under the menu item Setup->PRTG API->Custom Sensors.
