Perpetual Network Surveillance
PingPlotter Professional is graphical network monitoring software that plots latency and packet loss data for up to hundreds of targets at once. It includes everything in PingPlotter Standard plus tools for multi-target monitoring, interfacing with other systems, and remote data collection.
Flexible data storage
Adjust how PingPlotter manages data to improve load times and give you more control over what data you keep and what you throw away. You can learn more about Flex Storage by checking out this article.
Trace final hop only
Test only the target destination. Final Hop Only provides an easy way to decrease CPU usage in situations where you are testing a high number of targets at the same time. Alert actions for toggling final hop and full route are also available to help automate troubleshooting workflows. To learn more, check out this article.
Access through web browser
The web interface broadcasts PingPlotter across the web. It's useful for sharing information and managing the program remotely.
As many targets as you need
PingPlotter Pro tests hundreds of targets at once. Summary graphs are available for organizing targets and assessing performance at a glance.
Test from another device's perspective
Remote agents ping from locations beyond your computer so you can analyze network performance over multiple locations.
Select your network interface card
Directly control which network cards PingPlotter Pro uses for any trace. Compare multiple network connections in real time, test primary and secondary NICs in parallel, and monitor multi-NIC servers.
Save packet setting combinations
Named configurations make it easy to apply different packet settings to different targets.
Estimate Mean Opinion Score (MOS)
MOS is a VOiP metric that rates quality between 1 and 5.
View jitter graph
Jitter is the amount of variation in latency/response time, in milliseconds. The metric is useful when troubleshooting VoIP and other streaming services.
Organize multiple profiles
Workspaces save list of targets and settings together to help you avoid doing the same work multiple times
Detect & Inspect Route Changes
Route change alerts help investigate whether problems relate to specific paths through the network.
Follow changing IP addresses
Dynamic DNS improves long-term monitoring consistency by preventing PingPlotter from losing targets when IP addresses change.
Find devices on your network
Network discovery scans your local network and makes a list of the devices it finds. From there, you can add devices as targets to support your troubleshooting effort.
Capture evidence of network problems
Long-term monitoring perpetually collects information. If you're gone when something happens, you can always scroll back to inspect the event.
Keep the data you want
Auto-save preferences let you decide whether PingPlotter saves everything, saves after certain amount of time, or only saves when you say so.
Find out when networks misbehave
Alerts notify you via email, sounds, tray icons, and more when network performance meets your criteria.
Visualize the source of problems
The trace graph shows network performance at every hop between your device and a target website.
See network performance history
Timelines graph latency and packet loss history. In PingPlotter Standard, timelines hold as much time as you need and can be opened for any hop.
Post test results online
Sharing makes it easy to show others how your network is performing.
Automatically run in the background
Running as a service launches PingPlotter when your machine starts up. From there, the program starts tracing and continues even if you log out.
