      It's a great diagnostic tool. It isn't really this useful in our company for continuous monitoring because we don't have a giant network infrastructure but it sure is handy at times. It wasn't that hard to learn how to use PingPlotter and I believe it saved us a lot of time during troubleshooting. The price is alright compared to alternatives and I believe that it was a really great purchase for our company. It isn't appropriate if your network infrastructure is really small or limited just because you will find yourself missing out on a lot of features that you're paying for but not actually using. They are alternatives with fewer features for cheaper. For our company, PingPlotter is definitely a great tool.

        I have not had much contact with the PingPlotter support, only one time have I went to them and it was a positive experience. The questions I had were answered quickly and professionally. I have no issue with the experience I had with the Support team. This was from before and after the purchase of the product.

        A balance of a generic tool vs a network equipment product is necessary when investigating network incidents or disruptions. Need to train the engineer to use both tools to perform their analysis and to dive down to the issues as fast as they can. Experience with the tools will continue to play a part if we were to adopt PingPlotter
