Monitors multiple servers at a instance with values shown in a graph. Free Ping Tool is an advanced and reliable application designed to issue ping requests to "Multiple IP Addresses" in a single instance. And can find the health of the sever continuously for a maximum of 10 hosts. The ping data such as Ip address, RoundTripTime, Time To Live (Ttl), Buffer Size and the status are shown in a table.

1. Monitors multiple servers
2. Shows Ping Results in graphical format
3. Monitors external websites
4. Displays RoundTripTime in ms
5. Displays the status of the host.

Free Ping Tool will address this monitoring requirement. The ManageEngine Ping Tool, using ICMP Ping, monitors the availability of servers, routers, switches and mail servers internally and more importantly websites externally. The tool fetches important parameter like Round trip time, Time to Live of the packet, presents them as visually elegant running graphs and reports. The relevant data, graphs and reports are displayed in a desktop tool dashboard providing wealth of information about the real time functioning of the servers and websites.

The ManageEngine "Free Ping Tool" can monitor 10 servers and websites simultaneously. The best part is that the tool is made available, absolutely FREE of cost.

Free Ping Tool Features:
ManageEngine Free Ping Tool helps an administrator to view the following parameters and gives the availability of the server and its response time in real-time

1. Monitor Status of the servers, devices and websites
ManageEngine Free Ping Tool sends ICMP ping request to the server and if the target destination is reachable and if the server sends the ping response back then availability of the host is ensured then tool will show the status of the server as UP. If the tool unable to reach the target host using ping command then it will state the status as DOWN.

2. Ping Success Count
Tool pings the server, devices at specified time interval if remote host sends back the ping reply, Ping successful reply count will be incremented by one. Number of successful pings counts are shown here.

3. Ping Failure Count
Similar to success count, Tool will send PING request to the servers and devices. If the server or devices did not respond back then the server is not running or may be due to network related problem the packet is dropped. Then failure count will be incremented by one.

4. Host IPAddress
The ability to ping an IP address of remote host is vital to network troubleshooting. Ping Tool utilizes the ICMP ECHO protocol and sends a packet to a specified destination. It is called an ECHO_REQUEST. If the target destination is reachable, remote host will generate an ECHO_REPLY and sends it back to Ping Tool. When the ECHO_REPLY is received, connectivity between two hosts on a network is verified and the IpAddress is received.

5. RoundTripTime [ms]
Round-trip time (RTT), also called round-trip delay, is the time required for a signal pulse or packet to travel from a specific source to a specific destination and back again. On the internet, an end user can determine the RTT to and from an IP (Internet Protocol) address by sending ping requests to that address. Tool displays the RTT value in table and graph.

6. TimeToLive (Ttl) [Secs]
Time-to-live (TTL) is a value in an Internet Protocol (IP) packet that tells a network router whether or not the packet has been in the network too long and should be discarded. The original idea of TTL was that it should specify a certain time span in seconds that, when exhausted, would cause the packet to be discarded. Tool shows the value of Ttl in table.

Graph Details
The ManageEngine Free ping tool give the round trip time in a intuitive moving real time graph. Graph is drawn with Number of instances in the X-axis versus RoundTripTime (ms) in Y-axis for multiple hosts. The graph is drawn over the specified refresh time Intervals.

ManageEngine Free Ping Tool provides an exclusive monitoring of server, switch, router and websites as a desktop tool dashboard. It shows the actual round trip time of servers internally and also for the external websites. In case of non availability of servers then alert signal are shown in the dashboard . If at all, server goes down or non availability of server due to other network problem or response time increases alarmingly than the desired level.The IT administrator can then effortlessly manage instances to prevent server crash, or bring back the servers to normal functioning state.

Usage Guidelines
To use this tool run the MEFreePingTool.exe from the <Product Home>/bin directory.
1. Add multiple HostNames/IP Address to be pinged using the "Add" button.
2. Set the "Refresh" Interval.
3. Click the "Start" button.
4. The ping data will be collected in the data tab.
5. The graphical representation of the pinged data will be available in the graph tab.
6. Use the "delete" icon available in the table row to delete a row from the table.
7. Click the "Stop" button to stop the ping process.
