Overall Satisfaction with PingPlotter

PingPlotter is an amazing tool that helps us detect and monitor objects on the network. With the use of PingPlotter, you can easily see statistics such as network availability and or packet loss, latency, response time, and other useful metrics. PingPlotter is super useful for network admins and IT guys alike who need to visually see what is going on with the network.
  • Plotting pings over long periods of time.
  • Visually displaying metrics such as uptime, packet loss and response times.
  • It has an easy to use console.
  • Older versions were more of a standalone product; however, the newer versions have a cloud monitoring option.
  • Data collection using the ping plotter tool. Easily monitor network uptime, latency, and other valuable network data.
  • Performing a Traceroute is especially helpful with PingPlotter.
  • A huge impact in troubleshooting our own network trouble without having to call technical support.
  • PingPlotter has provided invaluable monitoring data.
  • 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.
