Techniques are presented herein that support the ability to dynamically create, implement, and monitor the performance of network probes in a low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite (LEOsat) deployment such that the probes can alert, as rapidly as possible, to real network and application performance issues while avoiding both the false positive and false negative conditions that are associated with more traditional, static network probe definitions. While such a dynamically defined probing capability would be valuable in any network deployment, it is especially so in a LEOsat deployment with its combination of highly variable delay, jitter, and packet loss, even between two LEOsat users who are in close proximity (due to the unique nature of each LEOsat ground terminal deployment and operating environment).
