You ask "How to configure MRTG plot reliability of a Link and end-end 
latency from a Cisco router."

The short answer is there is not an easy way to do this.

You can use the mrtg-ping-probe by Peter W. Osel 
http://pwo.de/projects/mrtg/. That will give you times from your MRTG box to 
a remote target. But it won't report from the view point of your Cisco 

Since 12.0.5, Cisco has incorporated a feature in their IOS called Response 
Time Reporter (RTR) (see 
This feature will send packets out from the router using a variety of 
protocols and store the response results in the router for later retreival. 
They use this feature in their Internetwork Performance Monitor module of 
CiscoWorks 2000 (see 
http://www.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/netmgmt/cw2000/IPM.html [CCO login 

It would NOT be easy to utilize this feature to get values for MRTG to 
graph. To my knowledge, no one has done this for general public viewing.

Would you like to take on the challenge and be the first? The MRTG community 
would love you for it.
