I am having issues with dropped connectivity between two sites and I notice it when my replication app emails us it lost connectivity but it goes back to normal after a few minuets once or twice a week but the VPN never drops.
The other day I got an email that my replication stopped and I immediately go on and tried to ping the remote server and found most of the pings were getting dropped for about five to ten minuets off and on. I then downloaded Ping Plotter and logged ping traffic for 24 hours and notice I was getting random drops throughout the day but most were not bad enough to stop replication.
I found the Ping Plotter tool to be very useful in this situation but the product is not free and I already own PRTG so I just wanted to know what sensor would work best in for monitoring connectivity to a specific IP address and would let me know when packets were dropped? Also if possible give me info on all the hops as well so I could see where the packets are getting dropped.
