"Diagnosis of network problems over data links and the Internet"

What do you like best?

PingPlotter is a tool that allows observing the behavior of a network equipment, host, internet link or data link through metrics formed by ping and traces to the destination.

The website offers different versions of the free, standard and professional program. the versions have different limitations, the most notable among each version is the number of devices to be monitored.

Its installation is simple with just mark next, next and next, enough. Its start-up and administration is intuitive: enter the address of the team to monitor and let the meter run for at least 30 minutes to get the graph of the link.

With the software you can verify when a data link has latency in a point-to-point connection or an Internet service. In addition to the latency you can verify when the data and Internet services have lost packages this metric is reflected in a percentage according to a period of time that one can choose. This helps us to create the incidence with the service provider and attack the eventuality. At the level of the internal network, it serves us not only to measure the latency of the equipment, but also you can check the milliseconds of ping and diagnose some fault of the NIC card or wiring.

You can observe the graphics by the program accessing the server or by entering a web page. As mentioned before, the software handles intuitive and easy-to-understand graphs as well as generate alerts or scheduled events when a link has a very high latency, there are many packet losses or when the remote host disconnects.

What do you dislike?

It does not have translation to other languages.

The web version is not so pleasant for the user.

It consumes a lot of processor and memory resources.

They should add an option, module or other tool that allows to manage how much bandwidth is consumed in the point-to-point data link or the Internet service.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Simple link monitor that allows you to solve network problems.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Check the status of the point-to-point data links of the regional offices and determine a saturated or fallen link and then report it to the service provider.

"My experience of data link monitoring with Pingplotter"

What do you like best?

The pingplotter tool is a tool that we use to see the data link states of the branches that are found in all the states of the country. With the pingplotter tool we can see the link status the lost percentage of the packets that are sent in the link. The tool shows a graph of the moment the link suffered a fall and the percentage of response time from the other end.

What do you dislike?

The tool does not provide us with enough information to know the states of the equipment, the tool only describes the links and the channel, but it does not show anything at the equipment level, memory percentage of the network equipment, or process, only It focuses on the state of links. To know how the state of the link is carried out with a constant testing to the other end, we determine how it behaves.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped us to have registered the falls to inform our users to keep them informed of the failures and in turn it serves as backup to inform the service provider of data link the period of fall of the link and the times of fall of links.

What Other IT Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Pingplotter data link monitoring"

What do you like best?

In the company Piramide Insurance we handle data link with the branches that are distributed throughout the country we have to keep them monitored, for this we use the Pingplotter tool to know the status of the data links. Pingplotter gives us a table with a graph of the states of services at the ping level, it provides us with some data where we can determine the percentages of packet loss in each link.

What do you dislike?

The version of Pingplotter pro is the paid version that for our company represents a quite high expense, the licenses have a high monthly cost, they should also improve the pro version at the level of the graphics. But apart from this the tool works installed in any server version is an excellent option to manage your data links.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Improve graphical data link interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the help of pingplotter we have the monitored links, and we know the order of packages and in the moment when the links fall and the specific time, this serves as a face-to-face test with the service providers.

"LAN and WAN traffic monitoring tool"

What do you like best?

Monitoring tool used to check the status of links, hosts or server in a network, applicable to a LAN or a WAN if you want to check the latency of the local Internet provider. Just enter the IP address so that you can start to see in a tab the trace of hosts that arrives from the source (computer where PingPlotter is running) to the receiver (host, network device or server to be monitored) with information such as latency in three colors: green (normal), yellow (exceeds the threshold of normal) and red (high latency), apart from displaying the latency in the lower section shows a detailed graph of the milliseconds of the pings in the upper side left, of the lost packages in a right superior side, latency in black color and visually in red the lost packages in addition the time of the graph can be changed from 5 minutes to 7 days to have a history of the possible falls, losses of packages that have suffered communication or latencies in said period of time.

You can configure the application so that I send you an email when there is a drop in monitoring, generate an audio alert, a visual alert, a log is written down the fall of the monitoring, you can set an alert that if a certain monitoring falls open a application and execute a command (useful if your Internet provider falls and you do not have a load balancer you can run the Putty application, generate the connection and make the script all automated in a small script) and finally and very helpful there is an alert that if the monitoring goes down or there is a very high latency or packet loss that exceeds the configured threshold, generate an image in useful PNG format when you must report a PTP or MPLS data link with your data provider.

What do you dislike?

No problem at times, meets the indicated and adapts to my needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Simple monitoring tool that fulfills its purpose. Totally recommendable, economic and with continuous updates and improvements.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has in one application the monitoring of all the network devices of the organization and the subsidiaries, ensuring that operability is always available and if there is an eventuality with the subsidiaries (mostly falls with the PTP or MPLS) they can attack the as soon as possible with the data provider

"Supervisor of links with extended ping"

What do you like best?

PingPlotter emerges as monitoring software for our company since we do not have a tool that would at least give us exact samples of the affected links that we have in our main office. PingPlotter is the most traditional tool that we have managed, thanks to the summation of links such as the internet and links of virtual private networks we have a more specific control, this helps us to have a history of 60 seconds up to 7 days as maximum verification of the status of the supervised link. Additional you can verify this link in intervals of time of seconds to maximum 1 hour, to check the frequency of monitoring

What do you dislike?

Despite the few functions such as monitoring software is a very important tool to ensure that our links and the quality of service to the company remain without problem

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I totally recommend the tool as a monitoring software to any link that you want to manage and demonstrate the quality of service. We do not underestimate the management, because it fulfills an important factor of superviction

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With PingPlotter we can make known how we do every day, a detail of each link that we are monitoring, for it we highlight that each link is always active, if a link is down and we have an alternate we can make the change instantly and we maintain active service

"My Pinplotter experience."

What do you like best?

Pingplotter is a tool that helps us to manage the states of data links. 'Pingplotter works adding the IP address that we want to monitor to have the graphs of the states, in our company we manage a large group of cleintes that have dedicated data links and I need a software to have a monitor to know the states of the links, for This pingplotter task is a tool that helps me to be aware of data links.

What do you dislike?

One of the weaknesses of Pingplotter is that it does not provide more information of the equipment, also when we have the software installed in windows server, it has failures, stopping services, this failure does not happen when it is detected in a Linux operating system, the program runs without problem and does not cause conflicts at the beginning.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Add the links plus evaluation data to carry out more feasibility studies of data links.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us in having monitored the branches to have monitored the services if they are down and have a base when they have to replicate against the suppliers.

" Experience with the PingPlotter data link monitor"

What do you like best?

By having a set of network links deployed in many states it is necessary to have an application that helps us monitor the state of the links. With the Plingplotter application in a multiplatform server the IPs that are to be monitored are configured and the software is responsible for monitoring the networks configured by means of an extended ping, it shows us latency statistics, sent packets and received packets.

What do you dislike?

The software is limited functions, the software monitors only the network links does not monitor at the memory level status of the network equipment simply ping and through that performs other analysis shows statistics. It also does not generate reports of how they behaved during a period of time, only the graph shows from the day the analysis was applied.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Add more monitoring data

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us to keep remote networks monitored through the tool also helps us with respect to service providers.

"The extended monitor of our links"

What do you like best?

Ping plotter is present in our department as a monitoring software in this year, just for the simple fact of doing a check on our part of the fallen links. With the tool we have seen in the daily journey the exact time of a fall, intermittence or restoration of links. In it, the links of the local network or the network wan can be grouped by means of a summation of links. PingPlotter works with an extended ping that only shows those interferences when it stops responding a synchronization time

What do you dislike?

PingPlotter for its beginning is a totally simple tool. It does not have enough monitoring tools to be cataloged as a complete monitoring software. However it is clear that the tool fulfills its function to the name that has been dedicated

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend ping plotter as an economical tool and very useful to generate reports of dropped links. I recommend the tool as a basic information need, focused on what is measured by seconds and even hours

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have solved problems such as indicating the specific time of the links that has stopped responding. With that information, we dedicate the information to the providers that need information necessary to solve the problem

"Ping Plotter link state analyzer"

What do you like best?

Pingplotter is a tool that we use to monitor the links of the branches that we have set up in the Alo24 Services network. With the help of this tool we can have a map of the state of the links that we have contracted with different companies. Ping Plotter works by entering a network works entering the IP that we want to monitor and the tool performs an extended ping where graphing losping a graph where it shows different details or statistics that indicate if there are losses in the signal.

What do you dislike?

The tool does not deepen the states of the network equipment as its temperature or internal state of the equipment, it is simply limited to the state of the link with the extended ping, it works very well but is limited to just doing that function.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Applying the ping plotter tool has helped us to always maintain the views of the workers the branches that are operative. We can also appreciate when the link has lost or failures in the link, this serves as a basis to make a claim at the time of reporting a failure against a data link provider.

"The ping, doctor of links"

What do you like best?

PingPlotter is the lightest and most distributed tool in resources to manage a performance of continuous monitoring by means of the execution of a ping extended to the destination that we wish to monitor, the tool as a report method leaves a trail or history of the falls that have suffered . Therefore for our daily work is a tool that has become a necessity to report the fall of a branch or some link that belongs to the company

What do you dislike?

I have left as documentation that the only error of the tool is the license incorporated, since it only allows to have a series of monitoring connections, therefore for a wide range of links in monitoring does not allow. Additionally, if the server where it is installed restarts, all the work saved from the tool is lost

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend the tool for any small or medium company that merits to carry a light control software that has the truth of the data of the links to be monitored. If you want to have control of them you can have this tool

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily I solve problems with the links that we have via vpn or point-to-point links, therefore we know exactly which links have dead and which do not, at the moment of executing report of them, we can have in detail the data

In search of a monitoring of links, internet, mpls or point multipoint. Ping plotter appears for our daily verification environment. A tool that is known by means of a console shared among users. The quality of the service that communicates a certain internet destination of our department. The tool, as a program, unifies the necessary functions to take control and supervision would give the maximum. Therefore it guarantees that the life of the administrator is less serious.

What do you dislike?

Among the dislike of the tool by our department, it is noted that the only error of the tool is that when restarting the server or PC where it is installed, the services are canceled. then you must create the services again for your enjoyment

"My experience with the Pingplotter link monitor"

What do you like best?

The Pingplotter link monitor is an extremely useful tool to keep track of the branches that we have configured and routed. Pingplotter performs an extended ping and shows us the graph that gives us the percentages of packet loss or intermittence, this helps us a lot since it serves as evidence against the providers and sevicios of data links.

What do you dislike?

The link monitoring tool is basic, it shows us the states of the links but does not include the states of the network equipment such as the memory or processor of the equipment or temperature, only shows us the links. The operation is very basic but very useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

improve graphical interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps us to see the status of services at the ping level, if the units are up, it is very useful for diagnosing equipment access failures.

"Pingplotter monitoring tool."

What do you like best?

Data links and connectivities are necessary and very useful at the moment when the company has numerous branches throughout the country to carry out their respective operations to produce the necessary capital that is aimed at the company, these data links keep them monitored in a constant with the help of the pinplotter tool, this tool helps us to see the states and links with a graph that provides us with information about the links with respect to the latencies and time that the links were active, it is a very useful tool for these cases .

What do you dislike?

the tool is only concerted in the states of the links, does not monitor the equipment at the level of level of prosesamiento or consumption of memory among other data that the health status of the team, simply verification of the link at the level of ping taking data it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped us to have a vitacora to know when the link was active, when the link is intermittent or when there are permanent falls in the states of the links. It also helps us when talking with an ISP staff of data or internet links that we have hired.

"My experience using Pingplotter as data link monitoring."

What do you like best?

Pingplotter is a data link monitoring tool, when you have a fairly large number of data links, it is necessary to have a team that is responsible for monitoring the links therefore pingplotter is a tool that will keep our links always indicating the behavior. of and packages of pardida to have information of how it behaves in the hours of the day.

What do you dislike?

The function of the tool is very basic, only to inform us how is the state of the branches link. Pingplotter is the basic link state tool does not show the states of the end devices, the only one based on layer 3 analysis only handles connectivity between IP addresses.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Improve the monitoring interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the help of pingplotter we know when a branch has lost the data link and they are without communications. It also helps us inform base when a service has fallen, the time and date.

"The best software to verify latency"

What do you like best?

Monitor the wan and lan links of the company

By means of the graph of the links, it can be determined if a data link service or a dedicated internet service presents intermittence, packet loss or latency. It also allows to know the time of the fall of a data link or dedicated Internet service.

The management and configuration of the tool is simple with just entering the IP address or service to monitor the default caput packages and graphs.

The tool is so powerful that when a data link goes down you have the possibility that the tool sends an email notifying the eventuality.

Allows graphing using the Jitter, MOS, latency, packet loss metrics.

You can configure the tool to be used as a web tool without the need to access the server and check the application.

What do you dislike?

Until now I have no problem with PingPlotter

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Tool easy to configure and use to determine when a service presents packet loss or falls at a certain point. Fully recommended if you want to have a program that will monitor links easy and fast.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been helped to report when a data link or internet service presents packet losses or when a link is dropped

" I'm a network engineer and I use pingplotter as a network monitoring tool. Administered Windows Ser"

What do you like best?

I like ping plotter is the ease of agreagar the network that I want to monitor, just entering the IP address that I want to monitor the tool is responsible for adding it. The tool provides you with information that helps us to verify how our link behaves, by percentage of loss of Avg packages and lantecia. At the same time it shows us graphs where it indicates the state of the link.

What do you dislike?

The graphical interface is very obsolete and not intuitive, some of the values ​​are not exact, they are varied values. The information regarding links is very small. The services on the Windows platform demand a lot from the team and many times they stop and leave the app on the left.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Improve the graphic interface.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to the ping plotter tool I can determine when one of my links loses connection visually with the help of graphics. When a locality loses connection the tool with the graph indicates to me that the link fell.

"Great software for monitoring IPs at a glace"

What do you like best?

Really fast, and you can import a list of what to be able to watch. Save lists and then you can rapidly change from monitoring one set to another without having to retype in IPs or names. Not 100% accurate, but it does a good job of monitoring 'at a glance' of what is going on. And its perfect for overnight or monitoring while you are doing other things.

What do you dislike?

Wish that you could set the option to always resolve a host name when it monitors by IP address. Having to right click each one to get the 'resolve hostname' is a bit of a pain when you are monitoring say a /22 full of equipment for packetloss.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Fix the resolve hostname so that you can set it to do that automatically. Also, the alerting seems a bit wonky, it works but it just seems like it was an afterthought.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick way to monitor devices for packet loss and response time. The importing of lists, and the built in graphs are great. And the alerting works very well once you get your head wrapped around the way it works.

"PingPlotter does exactly what it's supposed to do"

What do you like best?

I liked that it has a service mode that can record data even when the GUI isn't running.

What do you dislike?

I wish the TCP configuration was automatic but it was quite simple once I read the directions.

I also wish it had a capability to visually display the traceroute on top of a world map.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We installed PingPlotter to help diagnose intermittent connectivity problems from geographically distributed lab sites to our AWS-hosted website. PingPlotter helped us demonstrate clearly and visually when there were problems. We chose it specifically for a capability not found in many similar lightweight tools in that it allows measuring connectivity to a specific TCP port whereas many programs only allows to measure regular ping, i.e. ICMP packets.

"Great for Troubleshooting"

What do you like best?

Ping Plotter allows me to very simply verify connectivity. or i can watch my equipment be unreachable. A lot of the time i can watch a device go up and down over 24 hours (it can do more, but thats generally all i get to)

What do you dislike?

As of right now, there is nothing i dislike

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are managing remote locations over the internet, this is a great troubleshooting tool. it allows you to establish where to start troubleshooting. If you can't reach your remote location, check the wiring, then check the internet connection. If you can get there but something in the remote office is not working check your equipment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company(ISP) has equipment outside of our network. when they are having issues ping plotter is my first go to program. I can tell if another ISP or passthrough is having issues. This at times prompts me to make a route change, while other times its a call to that ISP to start a ticket. Ping Plotter has saved us many hours of troubleshooting and also allows us to show another ISP that the issues is theirs.
