PingPlotter Standard (previously called Ping Plotter Shareware or Ping Plotter 2.x) is a network troubleshooting and diagnostic tool for Windows. It uses a combination of traceroute, ping, and whois to collect data quickly, and then allows you to continue to collect data over time to give you the information you really need to identify problems (both short-term and long-term trends).
PingPlotter is unique in its ability to collect data (over a period of hours, days or weeks), and then allow you to focus on particular aspects of that data to determine where the problem is happening. PingPlotter graphically shows problems in a way that allows you to shorten the time it takes to pinpoint a problem.
Whether you're a user of an ASP, an online gamer, a VoIP user, user of some other network/Internet application or an administrator, at some point it's likely you'll encounter problems with your network or Internet connection(s). PingPlotter helps you pinpoint where the problems are in an intuitive graphical way, and to continue monitoring your connection long-term to further identify issues.
PingPlotter offers some unique value for network monitoring and troubleshooting:
Graphically display performance metrics about the route your data takes to a server.
Monitor network performance over time, capturing the moments when problems surface.
Zoom in on a problem period and construct a compelling case to have someone help you solve a problem.
Get notified when there is a network problem.
Save data or images, and send to others for review.
Troubleshoot without having to call your ISP, allowing you to know about problems before they do.
