How is the latency calculated for latency alert? devices.last_ping_timetaken


Does this mean 20% greater? 20ms?
If I have a device which is pinging 1ms all the time, and it jumps to 20, that’s a huge issue.

If a device is pinging 135 and jumps to 155 that’s not the end of the world.

What is the 20? I’m assuming it’s MS, not a %?

Apologies to just bump this, I thought I’d just see how the calculation is actually made?

Good morning and or afternoon.

Anyone here have any interest in this topic? Surely I can’t be the only one with this question?

I’m not going to give up, sorry to badger you all.

Does one know how I can configure this variable to be a little more forgiving of ping issues, (say latency is at least doubled, over a period exceeding 3 minutes) etc?

Thank you all for putting up with me!

This is 20ms

poller log output

SQL[update devices set last_ping_timetaken = ? where device_id = ? [1.99,1328] 1.39ms]

Thank you for the reply.
Is there a way to change this to a percentage rather than just 20ms jumps?

A 100ms link going to 120 isn’t the end of the world for example.
