Editor's review

One of the crucial tasks for a network administrator is to monitor the network performance of each device connected to the network. For checking the network performance, there is a conventional utility used by almost all network administrator dubbed, the Ping command, which measures the amount of time the packet data takes to reach a desired host with a certain IP address. But it works on a text only mode and may not be easy to use. Apart from this, it has a very limited functionality, assuming you are constantly on the need to check devices on a comparatively larger network. Ping Assist Pro v.1.6.0 is an application that helps you in this regard.

Publisher's description

A ping tool is an essential piece of software for anyone who administers a network or provides any kind of Internet related services. In order to maintain a consistently high level of quality control over your network and its devices, a ping utility collects detailed information about the network performance of each of the devices on your network, allowing you to analyze them later on. Ping Assist Pro is one of these ping tools, though it also offers some unique features such as running as a Windows service and using up only a negligible amount of system resources. The ping software is easy to install and set up, allowing you to select which devices on your network you want to be monitored and which alarms, if any, you want to assign to them. Alarm notifications can be given by sounds, network or system tray messages or email notifications. In addition, detailed performance ping statistics are also retained in the program's logs and can be viewed in textual or graphical format. For more information on this ping tool, visit
