MultiPing from Nessoft. It's a great tool for monitoring and is free/$25.
It's for Windows, however. I also use PingPlotter (it is a continuous
traceroute for a single target) for troubleshooting along a path.


hrPING is nice, too, as long as you are willing to check the log. It's a
Linux tool which is also available for Windows.

How do you track this? Manually, or with some program that reports ping

Hello Jerry.


I have a Cisco DPC3010, straight from Cox (twice). It allows access to the
status page ( which includes the signal level info. My signals
are always good, even when the packet loss is taking place. Others in my area
have the problem also. So it's not a problem on just my feed.


Sometimes problem seems to correlate with high-usage times (late afternoon,
evening), but not well enough to say there is a casual link. For example, I
saw loss of over 1% yesterday during these periods:


    00:50 to 01:00

    03:00 to 05:00 (up to 10%)

    15:40 to 17:00 (up to 12%)

    19:52 to 19:59 (up to 25%)
