Top 10: Slowest Pings

Is it possible to set or change the ping ms value used for the above top 10 object?

If not is there a better object to use to report on high ping times, or would I need to create a custom object?

Hi there,

Could you further specify what you want to change and from what to what? :)

Best regards.

From what, I'm not sure.

I'm assuming the Top 10: Slowest Pings object goes through each item in the selected group and displays the 10 items with the slowest ping times.

Is it possible to make this object, or a custom object, that only alerts if an a ping is over a pre-defined value, say 70ms?

Thanks,

Hi there,

That would not be a list of top 10 slowest, that would be a list of all ping sensors that are slower than 70 ms.

So unfortunately, there is no option to specifically display this within a map.

Best regards.

So as per my original question, is there a way to show the top "X" number of devices, with a ping over a pre-defined value?

Hi there,

The device is always displayed - along with last value and sensor name. So you already get a list of devices. Or am I missing something here?

Best regards.

I think you are missing something, I will try to explain it a bit clear.

We have for example 150 sensors that we want to monitor for high ping / response times. At present it just seems to list the top 10 it finds that are slowest, regardless of the ms value.

What I want to do is monitor that same group of 150 but want it to only show the device as having a "slow ping" if the MS response is say, over 70.

Hi there,

Now I get it. You want to get all devices/sensors within that group and show only those where the last value is above 70 ms. :)

Unfortunately, that is not possible via the default map object. But you can check the object on the Core Server under "C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\mapobjects\". The object is called "Top10 Ping Slowest.htm".

Best regards.

Yeah that's the object I am using, I was wondering if it was possible to either create a custom object and set the 70ms threshold or set it elsewhere for the monitoring group the devices are part of.

Hi there,

You will need to customize the object by yourself most likely. Or another user maybe posts a solution, but we can't assist you with customizing PRTG as stated here:
