EMCO Ping Monitor: Main Features and Benefits

EMCO Ping Monitor can be used to perform ping monitoring of just a few hosts or thousands of hosts. The application allows you to get information about the statuses of all the hosts, check the detailed statistics of a selected host and compare the performance of different hosts. The following features of the application allow you to get a detailed overview of all the monitored connections.

Multi-Host Ping Monitoring

The application can monitor multiple hosts concurrently. The Free edition of the application allows monitoring up to five hosts; the Professional edition doesn't have any limitation for the number of monitored hosts. Monitoring of every host works independently from other hosts. You can monitor tens thousands of hosts from a modern PC. Learn how it works

 

Connection Outages Detection

The application sends ICMP ping echo requests and analyzes ping echo replies to monitor the connection state in the 24/7 mode. If the preset number of pings fail in a row, the application detects a connection outage and notifies you of the problem. The application tracks all outages, so you can see when a host was offline. Learn how it works

Connection Quality Analysis

When the application pings a monitored host, it saves and aggregates data about every ping, so you can get information about the minimum, maximum and average ping response times and the ping response deviation from the average for any reporting period. That allows you to estimate the quality of the network connection. Learn how it works

 

Flexible Notifications

If you would like to get notifications about Connection Lost, Connection Restored and other events detected by the application, you can configure the application to send e-mail notifications, play sounds and show Windows Tray balloons. The application can send a single notification of any type or repeat notifications multiple times. Learn how it works

Charts and Reports

All statistical information collected by the application can be represented visually by charts. You can see the ping and uptime statistics for a single host and compare the performance of multiple hosts on charts. The application can automatically generate reports in different formats on a regular basis to represent the host statistics. Learn how it works

 

Custom Actions

You can integrate the application with external software by executing external scripts or executable files when connections are lost or restored or in case of other events. For example, you can configure the application to run an external command-line tool to send SMS notifications about any changes in the host statuses. Learn how it works
