Why Use MultiPing?

MultiPing is the comprehensive, lightweight "go-to" application for multi-target monitoring and alerting. It allows you to simultaneously monitor numerous targets, and provides detailed historical information about the data it collects in an easy-to-consume graphical format.

You can use MultiPing to help with a number of different monitoring situations, such as:

  • Monitoring a large amount of IP cameras. MultiPing provides a great way to keep track of which of your IP cameras are responding, and can notify your if one (or more) happens to go down - so you can get it fixed before it becomes an issue
  • You can monitor key servers/routers/machines to see their status, if they're responding, and how quickly they're responding. If you're in charge of a large network with a lot of connected devices - MultiPing can make your job much easier.
  • If you're a gamer, VoIP subscriber, or stock trader - MultiPing can help you pick the best server to make sure you're getting the best performance possible. You can set up a list of possible servers you might use, and sort them by latency, packet loss, or more - and choose the best performing one out of the group
  • Monitor all the active devices on your home network with MultiPing. Everything is network-connected these days (well... *almost* everything). You can use MultiPing to discover the devices connected to your home network, and get alerted if something goes offline that shouldn't (like that leak sensor under your sink...)

There are some situations, however, where MultiPing might not be the perfect tool for you, such as:

  • You already know there's a network problem (and when it happens), but need help determining where that problem originates.
  • You need to be able to save past data to send to another source for review.
  • Kryptonite has somehow made its way into your office, and you're "allergic."
  • You need something that runs on a hosted (subscription) service outside your network.

PingPlotter can accomplish the first two of these things (and much more). PingPlotter Standard can also be paired with MultiPing to help give you a powerful toolset to monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot uptime on a network attached target.
