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.
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.
