PingGraph is a monitoring tool tailored to the needs of network administrators. PingGraph gathers ping response times from multiple host systems, and draws graphs of ping response over time, as well as estimating the current bandwidth available on the connection.
Scrolling graphs may be shown for a wide range of time scales from a minute to a year, allowing you to quickly identify trends, connectivity problems and packet loss across your network. Data is saved in a simple XML format for easy use by external applications. The log file size is automatically managed so you don't have to worry so much about disk space.
"This version is awesome! ... visually monitoring is extremely valuable." (a response to version 220.127.116.11)
"... we use PingGraph to monitor the gateways of our WAN and a VPN. It has helped us be more proactive in our service delivery."
"I absolutely love the graphing capabilities. Good work!"
"I use it to remotely monitor a group of adsl and vpn routers via their adsl connections. It is working really well and has already shown up a poor performance connection."
"Really good stuff!"
One customer found a longstanding problem with their server hardware with PingGraph. They were seeing a graph with pings showing a strange low-high alternating sequence:
It was being caused by a problem with a particular model of multi-core HP + AMD server, and was well documented, if you knew to search for negative ping times. He downloaded a patch, and was up and running at higher efficiency in no time. Congratulations on the great sleuthing, Richard!
The release notes installed with the latest version of PingGraph may be viewed here. The release notes include details on pricing, registration, troubleshooting, and a FAQ. This file is included with the self-installing executable.
It is large, so you may want to plan for a time when you can let the download run for a while. Modem users can order the update on CD from Microsoft.
Both Vista and Windows 7 come with the .NET runtime already installed, so you should be good to go if you're running a fairly new system and keep it updated regularly.
Here are a few of the software download sites that have reviewed or tested PingGraph. Check out the user ratings on their sites.
