Re: [Connectivity] Latency Issue

Is there a recommendation for a Mac-compatible alternative to PingPlotter?

Maybe Smokeping, though I don't know how to interpret the results.

Thanks devnuller, I'll check that out.

Also, I've been running smokeping for awhile now, see link:

Anybody care to interpret the results?

I'm definitely seeing some packet loss, on the order of a few percentage points. Also, the period on the graphs corresponding to 8:30PM-midnight, I was streaming Netflix for a good portion of that time, and it seems to have dropped a few more packets, and the pings were definitely less consistent (I probably should have prioritized ICMP packets on my router).
