PingPlotter allows you to monitor network issues by continuously gathering network info, and allows you to capture and graph traceroute and other networking information.
PingPlotter is a complex, in-depth networking software package that gives the user a lot of capability and freedom to check network performance and troubleshoot any issues.
It allows you to continuously monitor your network so you can find issues even when you aren't there.
Using capabilities like Dynamic DNS to watch for IP changes, you can tackle even complex issues with constantly changing IP addresses. You can get alerts from changes to the routers on your network, check for devices that were added to your network without your permission, and find and look at any route changes, and you can do all of this with different types of packets.
In addition to those basic troubleshooting procedures, you can also do a deep dive into your network's performance and any issues that might arise. Advanced graphing capabilities can be used to view your network's performance over time or in specific areas, and get email alerts if the network performance isn't up to the level that you're looking for. The visualizations given will show you every hop on the network between your devices, and you can use that information to get a better look at where the packets are going, see any unexpected network traffic information, and get a solid understanding of exactly how your network is performing versus your own expectations.
All of the performance monitoring can run in the background so it doesn't block your view or distract other users on your machine and keeps working even if you log out of your Windows account.
