You could have heard of the time period “excessive ping”. It is normally related to on-line gaming, however is additionally used to indicate that the web connection is sluggish or that actions are delayed.
One of the commonest methods to verify the community high quality is to make use of the Ping command in CMD. The decrease the ping worth, the quicker your connection velocity.
But if you wish to verify your reference to a number of hosts concurrently, you need to use a multi ping tool. vmPing is a program that matches the standards. The title stands for Visual Multi Ping, as a result of it makes use of a visible ingredient to work, aka an interface.
The program is moveable and depends on a single EXE that weighs about 280 KB. vmPing’s GUI has twin panes or host home windows, however you possibly can open extra host home windows through the use of the “+ Add host” button within the high left nook. I attempted opening a few dozen of those and it labored, there does not appear to be a limitation to the variety of home windows you possibly can have. vmPing’s host home windows mechanically resize themselves as you add extra.
Click within the field to the left of the Ping button, this is a textual content discipline. Type the hostname (for e.g. Ghacks.internet) or an IP handle (e.g. 220.127.116.11), and click on on the Ping button or use F5 or the Start All button on the high of the display screen. The program will start pinging the server that you just chosen, and the Ping button transforms to a Stop button. The outcomes are displayed within the host pane in real-time.
vmPing makes use of colours to point the standing of the connection. Each host standing is proven in a unique shade for inactive, up, down, indeterminate, error. (Green – Up, Red – Down, Orange – Error). You could customise the colours from the structure tab of this system’s choices.
The ping outcome consists of knowledge such because the packets despatched, acquired, misplaced, together with the time values for minimal, most and common in ms. This is identical to the common ping command. Hit the cease button to terminate the ping strategy of the corresponding window. To cease all of them directly hit F5 or click on on the cease all button.
Close a selected host by clicking the X button in its high proper nook. The maximize button opens a bigger view of the pane, referred to as remoted view. The pencil button allows you to edit the alias/host settings, which is helpful if you already know the DNS particulars of the server.
vmPing can execute a number of such ping instructions on the similar time, which is principally what a multi-ping utility is for. The program doesn’t keep in mind the hosts you entered by default, so you may lose the information in the event you shut this system.
However, it can save you the hosts listing by clicking the arrow button within the high proper nook, and by choosing “Favorite units > Save present structure to favorites”. This opens a pop-up window that lists your hosts. Give the set a reputation and click on the save button. The subsequent time you need to use this system, choose Favorite Sets > and click on on the title of the set. vmPing will load it and mechanically start pinging the hosts in it.
You could use this system to observe TCP ports. Enter the hostname/IP handle:port and ping it to observe the port. The menu has two extra instruments: Trace Route and Flood Host. The former checks the community path of your PC’s connection to the host, to measure delays. Flood Host principally retains pinging the server constantly with out ready for a response.
Hit F10 or use the arrow menu to entry the vmPing Options display screen. It means that you can outline the ping interval, timeout, alert threshold seconds. Set the packet knowledge dimension to be despatched for pings, get e mail alerts or audio alerts to be notified when a server goes down or comes again on-line.
The program can optionally be used to save lots of the ping output or standing adjustments to a plain textual content file. vmPing requires .NET four.5 or above to run. The program is open source.
