Ping is a simple uptime monitor that uses your Mac's internet connection. Keep track of the status & speed of websites, APIs, servers, routers or any endpoint and get feedback directly in your menu bar and local notifications.

• Heads-up-display of the status of all your sites right in the menu bar.
• Get local notifications when a url is erroring or unreachable.
• HTTP & ICMP pinging.
• IPv6 support.
• Measure and configure response times to see if a url is performing slowly.
• Control how often you want to ping your urls.
• Customize the information you want to display.
• Secure & private: no tracking or analytics.
• Fully native app with performance & battery life in mind.
• Built-in response logging or stream responses to terminal.
• Configure webhooks to ping another service when an endpoint is down to send yourself an email, sms, etc.
• AppleScript support for building your own custom workflows.

Instead of paying a monthly fee for an external notification service, get notified directly for free while you are actively working at your computer. Ideal for webmasters, dev ops, gamers, network administrators, or anyone!

Absolutely Perfect

Ping does one thing and it does it perfectly. It pings websites and IP addresses and returns the restults. But it does so simply, beautifully, and provides that exact amount of information needed--not too much, not too little. I couldn't ask for more (or less). Thank you for the hard work which resulted in the pefect interface and reporting system.

I have a long list of domains including ones that only forward, so the paid version is perfect to simply enter all of them and make sure they're all up and running. You can even choose which method is used, which is useful to me. Super simple, clean, and reassuring.

Great little app...

Really love this app. There's one small bug where it will ping sometimes in sleep mode for macbooks while the clamshell is closed. Not sure what this is but other than that it works awesome. Hopefully bug fix in the future.
