Ping Monitor is an automatic tool for tracking connections with hosts, located in the local network and Internet. It detects connections statuses by sending regular pings and analyzing responses. If pings to host are failed a defined number of times in a row, application detects and reports a connection outage.
Ping Monitor can work in 24/7 mode to track the connections states and calculate connections statistics, which is reported on the main screen. Displayed parameters for every host include monitoring time, uptime percentage, total number of detected outages, percent of passed pings and ping statistics. This information can be used to evaluate the quality and stability of the connection.
In addition to monitoring features, Ping Monitor offers an extended notifications and reporting functionality. You can configure the application to report connection lost, restore events and ping statistics as messages in a System Tray area or to send correspondent notifications by e-mail.
If required, you can extend functionality of the application and setup custom event handlers for execution on connections lost and restore events. Any command or executable file with optional command-line parameters can be defined as the event handler. Also it's possible to activate special terminate actions when connections to all monitored hosts are lost or cannot be retrieved during defined period of time. This feature allows you to make shutdown, reboot, hibernate and logoff operations on computer where Ping Monitor is launched.
