Maybe I missed the window of opportunity? :-) Maybe :-) My point is that the "outage panel" lists a lot of "downs" for yesterday, but these periods are not visible in the graphs for that timeframe as grey "no data" bars. Given the stability of my ADSL link, I'd rather believe in the graphs instead of the list of down-up transitions. So, I probably should have asked: which criteria do you select or evaluate to declare a probe "down" and then "up" again? :-) > Seriously: if there's a structural problem, then _all_ the graphs will have > gaps in exactly the same intervals.

I "simply" try to understand how this stuff works. Because I consider this understanding as essential to grok the information in the graphs (and to be able to make potential probe-sponsors intersted). Cheers, Wilfried.
