Hi. I wish to use a specific sensor to ONLY monitor my Internet uptime. I tried logging ping requests which does show me the areas of downtime but I want something a little more specific. Also, it's not clear how often the monitoring pings in PRTG occur. I have an issue with my service that spikes down erratically for only a fraction of a second.
Services logged in detach in these gaps which is really annoying - hence the need to find out what is going on and more important - logging it.
As usual, my ISP says there is nothing wrong with my service. I've swapped out ALL the equipment and run the connection stripped bare - and it still does it. It's definitely the ISP. I'm pretty sure it is to do with their traffic shaping at certain times of the day which creates a stop/start as the service switches their routers - but I need to prove it.
PRTG, Im sure will help me with this. Which sensor is recommended to do this - and which ones will poll at small time intervals? They have to be small as the service simply goes Down/Up - as quick as that. I need to catch it!
Any ideas guys. how would you go about this?
I'm running the trial version right now so I realise that this isn't going to get answered any time soon but some sort of reply would be appreaciated.
