Editors' Review

+
This utility lets you trace the route of packages across the Web. Its interface is not so snazzy-looking, as with some analogous programs that draw the packet route on a world map. However, Ping Plotter's charts and its highlighting of pings in red let you instantly see bottlenecks. The program enables you to track average ping times, and you can set the monitoring period and the interval between pings. You can save results as plain text or as a snapshot of the program window. Ping Plotter Freeware will be of use to system administrators.

"Very Useful to see network delays/loss"

January 01, 2008  |  By jstefan2

 |  Version: Ping Plotter Freeware 1.1

Pros

It is free, it showed me where packets were lost and delayed. I suspect the paid version is great, but did not need to buy it. I would buy it if I dealt with network throughput all day.

Cons

Logging is reserved for the paid version, but that is a good marketing decision.

"Failed to work."

July 23, 2007  |  By sean_vikoren

 |  Version: Ping Plotter Freeware 1.1

Pros

-none-

Cons

As far as I can tell, this software fails to create a legal file name for the log file and has no chance of working. I was left hoping that I did nothing else.

"Simple, quick, easy, a no-brainer"

April 06, 2006  |  By jules4099

 |  Version: Ping Plotter Freeware 1.1

Pros

1) The price.

2) It's all up front, everything you want is presented in one nice little package.

3) Ping and trace in one step. I haven't used DOS to do either since I got this program.

Cons

If anything, and this is really being trite, the graph output is so straight forward and simple, it's kind of ugly. I remember Visual Trace (back before McAfee bought it, tweaked it, then charged for it) did what this does except it also gave you a cool geographical representation of the route. Other than that, this program rocks out loud!

"Excellent"

June 27, 2005  |  By Shifty Sherlock

 |  Version: Ping Plotter Freeware 1.1

Pros

I have used Ping Plotter in several organisations over several years, on Win98, NT, 2k, XP and always found it reliable and useful. It shows you all the hops to the destination and the relative time to ping each one; this makes slow links obvious. Having identified a problem it is useful to be able to save a trace and show it to someone later on. I thoroughly recommend this - it has stood the test of time both in usefulness and reliability.
