Using an alternate monitor IP for quality graphs

From pfSense Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

In many scenarios, the quality graph for an interface may not be as accurate as desired. The most common scenario is when a gateway, (i.e. the next hop), is local to the site and not on the other end of an Internet or remote connection.

To use an alternate address, do as follows:

  • Navigate to System > Routing
  • Click 'e' to edit the gateway
  • Enter the IP address to ping for gateway monitoring in Alternative monitor IP
  • Click Save
  • Click Apply Changes
