Project Watchdog is an initiative by Network Innovations at NTT to enable internet quality monitoring and time-series data aggregation. Built on our EdgeLQ platform, it secures data transfer to public and private cloud services. The agent sends a ping to the target to measure latency, jitter, and loss in regions and ISPs. The dashboard collects the measurement data of agents all over the world and visualizes them as time-series data.
The Watchdog Dashboard provides visualization of network performance across all agents by geography, targets, ISPs, and groups. Administrative functions are enabled for Admins to manage users and agents, and Asset Manager to manage agents.
Watchdog agent measures internet quality and reports data to dashboards by sending one ICMP/HTTP(S) probe packet to each endpoint target every 30 seconds (size 40 bytes). Speed tests the agent sends HTTPS upload and download tests each hour, or on-demand from Desktop Agent UI (Size 4 MB for broadband). 10 gig speed tests are avialable.
