[mrtg] Measureing Latency

Hello again,

I have a question.  I am trying to measure latency.  I have measurement 
graphing with ping probe but some people are saying that this may be an 
inaccurate graph for latency because pings can be delayed by the router due 
to priority reasons.

So I am needing information on how I can graph latency without using 
pings.  Some methods that I have found has brought me to use Network 
Monitoring Using Cisco Service Assurance Agent across Cisco Networks.
Also another method is to use Network Time Protocol (NTP).  I have not 
heard much on this way but it was said in a search on deja.com that this is 
how UUNet measures latency.

Has anyone on this group ever heard of  any other way besides of ping test 
to measure latency??
