Alternative to BQM


[link to this post]
 
For a couple of months I have had FTTP from Airband. Unfortunately they use CGNAT and I have been unable to get the router to pick up an IPV6 address, so BQM is not possible.

Is there anything available basically to do the same function but with the ping originating at my end?

I am using a Pi4 with OpenWRT as a router, and I also have an Odroid HC1 NAS, both permanently on so either could be used.

If nothing available I am tempted to roll something myself.

I have just knocked up a rough script that produces a file of data (date, time, dropped packets, min, average ,max, ping times) as here.

I am guessing I can use GnuPlot to display this in a similar format to BQM.

I am currently pinging dns,google.com (8.8.8.8) any alternative suggestions?
