Advanced Ping Tool

Advanced Ping Tool

Hi all,

can anyone recommend a (ideally free smile ) tool that can.

ping an IP address all day and

a) Send an email if it doesn't respond for x amount of pings and
b) Send an email at the end of the day with a summary of the days ping performance.

I;m using Colasoft CoolPing at the minute which is great but doesn't do either of the above.


RE: Advanced Ping Tool

That can be written pretty painlessly. What OS will run the tool? Scripting languages like Ruby are your friend winky smile

RE: Advanced Ping Tool

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

it will run on xp.

Never heard of Ruby, done a bit of work in VB but thats about it.

I'll give that a go as I'm very keen to be able to create my own tools like this.

Thanks a lot

RE: Advanced Ping Tool

Thanks very much for that. I am using dberg35's recommendation and its doing exactly what I want.

Thanks again
