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.

We've considered using LogicMonitor, but we didn't find it a better alternative. We had a lot of complaints about the Alerts feature. LogicMonitor is also quite resource-hungry and it doesn't really offer much else. It's also a bit more pricey, unlike PingPlotter which stands at a great price. PingPlotter is a lot faster and easy to use and is really lightweight. We haven't found anything better than PingPlotter for our use case and we are very happy with it. It definitely needs improvements regarding the interface though.

  • SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm)
PingPlotter stacks up very well to SolarWinds NPM and can provide many of the same benchmark tests that Solarwinds can. PingPlotter is most certianly much better at doing Traceroutes than npm, and you can run a lot of the same reports.

It didn’t come up to my expectations cause of Being 1. Less active 2. More pricey 3. Heavily weighted for our systems. On the contrary, PIngPlotter is entirely different from our prior experience as it is fast, active, reasonable price, and is very light for our systems. All this makes it a highly favorable tool for our company’s needs.

PingPlotter is a basic version of Auvik, although it is easier to setup and there is less intrusion in the customers network. This allows us to use PingPlotter as a prospecting tool and allows to accurately gather network information very quickly. Basic troubleshooting is great with PingPlotter and we can quickly and easily identify issues on the local network, ISP link or internet. Auvik gives us a lot more detail and we use it exclusively with existing clients only.

I have tried a few free products and some paid ones but never really did what I wanted. I just needed a simple, always-on link monitor specifically with a traceroute element and this is what PingPlotter delivers. The others were either overly complex or too expensive, some just didn't have what I needed. PingPlotter fills a niche and it does it well.
