Ping Monster Description
Ping Monster is a lightweight piece of software that allows you to determine the performance and quality of your network connectivity via a fast and uncomplicated ping test.
Comes with an old-school CommandLine-like UI
The application does not require any setup and consequentially, you can use it as soon as you download it to your computer. Upon launch, you are welcome by a conservative interface designed to black and green. The main window is dedicated to displaying the results of the ping for each of the hosts that you added for the test.
As you would expect, the data is displayed along with additional valuable information, such as the date, time, the response times and whether you got an error. It is worth mentioning that the utility continues to perform the test until you hit the Stop button, but without being too distracting, as it works quietly in the background.
Enables you to configure the network ping test
The highlight of the application stems from the fact that you can carry out connectivity tests to as many hosts as you want. You can add a new host by simply typing in the IP address and an optional description from the Configuration window.
The utility also allows you to specify the interval in seconds between the pings as well as the attempts to ping before triggering an action. As far as the actions are concerned, you can set the utility to play the default Windows alert sound, call the URL via an HTTP protocol or send and email via an SMTP server.
Then again, it would have been nice if the program also included some sort of a reporting system, where you can save the logs during the tests and export them so you can compare and analyze them later on.
A useful tool for testing the network connectivity
All in all, Ping Monster is a straightforward software solution that can help you carry out ping tasks to remote hosts without having to bother with complex parameter configuration.
