Description

Be the hero - network troubleshooting powers for mortals

Get notified about network problems the moment they occur and find culprits quickly with PingPlotter's graphing and alert system. Our best in class graphical traceroute and ping tools go wherever your network needs you. With a desktop and mobile version at your disposal, you can pinpoint network problems anywhere, anytime.

For instant vision into network performance, simply enter a target address and PingPlotter will begin graphing latency and packet loss. The multi-dimensional output is displayed on two graphs - a trace graph that plots current measurements for all participating routers and a timeline graph that shows individual router performance over time.

Audio based monitoring keeps hands and eyes free for other activities while playing sounds that inform ears about network performance. A monitoring system especially useful during visually demanding, network dependent, activities like online gaming. While PingPlotter Mobile is streaming background audio, players can keep their eyes on the game, hear when network performance deteriorates, and take cover before lag negatively effects their experience.

PingPlotter for iOS, yeah!

I would like to see higher resolution for the iPad Pro, and to be able to arrange windows when in landscape mode, similar to the desktop version. Be nice to be able to run in the background (or does the $12 upgrade include that?). Is there an upgrade price for owners of the desktop version?

poor execution, much better ping apps available

as a network engineer, I’m familiar with this companies ping plotter tool on desktop. It’s very well done and useful, I have purchased it and use it on occasions where I need to test end to end, or an entire channel.

So I was very surprised when I tried this app and noticed how poor of an execution the iOS version is.
The interface does not seem to be aligned or scaled properly on iPhone.

Additionally there are pretty much zero settings directly related to the pings.
When testing Wi-Fi on a mobile device, one needs to be able to set the send interval very low, for example on other Ping apps you can set it as low as 0.1 seconds, ( ie 100ms , or sending 10 pings every one second). The one setting I found like this only went down to 0.5, and when I changed it to that nothing seemed to change, pings were still sending every two seconds which is not very useful.

Additionally what you get for the nine dollar upgrade is a joke.

I would really like to see this app redone and brought more closely to the standards of this company’s desktop app.

Only works in Active Screen, stops working when screensaver turns screen off

I’ve use this app for many years as a desk top tool. There’s nothing else on the market like it that I’ve found. It’s the best.

But this app isn’t. Works fine in primary screen but stops working if the screensaver launches or if you close to another app. It stops working and does not recover when you go back to it. Press the play button and it seems to restart, but can’t find the network and reports 100% outage. All red.

Please developer fix this so It can be the consummate tool the desktop version has been for many years.
