Description:

 

This ZenPack contains a template that should be valuable for anyone running a network where latency is crucial.

It includes 4 graphs: 
  • An "overall" graph representing latency and loss
  • A basic packet loss graph
  • A graph showing min and max deviation from the average response time
  • A graph showing number of pings sent, received, and lost
Some caveats: 
  • fping has to be installed in /usr/sbin (or you need to change the Cmd field accordingly)
  • sed has to be installed in /bin (or you need to change the Cmd field accordingly)
  • the ping count "totals" aren't accurate, they need to be divided by 60 (the time step) but I haven't figured out how
  • I should probably consolidate the graphs because some of the data is redundant
  • I didn't include any thresholds because that seems very environment-specific
