I want monitor a device availability with this customization:
Monitoring 1000 Ping request of 100 bytes packet size in 1 hour
So, i need a single ping request sensor for every 3.6 seconds (4s)
I created a single ping request sensor with 4s interval and 100 bytes packet size and with 2s timeout.
But the packet loss in graph and in data table is always 0% even though there is several downtime and error in data table.
While, PRTG shows the packet loss for the same device in sensor with count of 5 ping request in 60s interval and 5s timeout.
1- Did I correctly identify and create sensor for this customized monitoring?
2- Why does the tool in such a sensor not show the packet loss?
This despite the fact that i can easily see the packet loss in other tools with the same settings, like: Windows CMD, Linux shell command, PingPlotter and etc.
Also in historic data of that sensor in any time span, the "Average (Packet Loss)" always shows 0% though the reports has several downtime error and while it has a non-zero value in "failed" section in "Request Stats".
Thanks for your guidance
No Packet Loss Showing in Customized Ping
