"Effective and powerful software to determine the source of problem indeed."

What do you like best?

The most appreciable thing about this software is that it is quick and easy for everyone that is used in a best way to monitor network, to write scripts, remote deployment as well as web interface. One can get accurate and clear graphical information through this software. The other thing is that rarely network issues occur. One can easily and quickly discover network and detect numerous network related issues with the help of this marvelous software. I love using all of the advance functions provided by this tool.

What do you dislike?

This is no doubt perfect invention but one of the issue is that it is limited used by the people because it is quite expensive software. One thing I would like to suggest is that this software should have an option to send reports by sending email. One can view Internet connection fantastically with the help of this software.

I would like to recommend people to take trails and explore as many features as they can and if one want to test connections it would be amazing.

" Excellent management of Unifi antennas"

What do you like best?

PingPlotter has many benefits when it comes to managing ubiquiti antennas.

1) The installation, administration and management of the antennas are simple.

2) The adoption of antennas in the best of cases is easy.

3) Give a graphical appreciation of the consumption of each antenna and each device.

4) Create sites as if they were different locations.

5) Statistics can be obtained by antenna, by SSID and by radio type.

6) It allows the firmware update of the antennas via ftp or http.

7) It allows the restart of the antennas from the Unifi console.

8) Store a log of the devices that have been connected and the closest SSIDs.

9) Most notable of the application is the option to block a device and prevent it from connecting to that or another SSID.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about the application is that it does not allow filtering by SSID.

When an update of the antenna firmware is made in certain opportunities it does not update and I must proceed to format the antenna and apply the update directly on the antenna via SSH.

To obtain the potential of the application you must use equipment of your own brand but the application is limited.

I have nothing negative about the rest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Oriented to Ubiquiti producer

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits have been to have a management of the equipment connected to WiFi, this helps us to verify if a computer is consuming more bandwidth than you need and have more control of each device that connects.

What Other IT Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

" I'm a network engineer and I use pingplotter as a network monitoring tool. Administered Windows Ser"

What do you like best?

I like ping plotter is the ease of agreagar the network that I want to monitor, just entering the IP address that I want to monitor the tool is responsible for adding it. The tool provides you with information that helps us to verify how our link behaves, by percentage of loss of Avg packages and lantecia. At the same time it shows us graphs where it indicates the state of the link.

What do you dislike?

The graphical interface is very obsolete and not intuitive, some of the values ​​are not exact, they are varied values. The information regarding links is very small. The services on the Windows platform demand a lot from the team and many times they stop and leave the app on the left.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Improve the graphic interface.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to the ping plotter tool I can determine when one of my links loses connection visually with the help of graphics. When a locality loses connection the tool with the graph indicates to me that the link fell.

"PingPlotter does exactly what it's supposed to do"

What do you like best?

I liked that it has a service mode that can record data even when the GUI isn't running.

What do you dislike?

I wish the TCP configuration was automatic but it was quite simple once I read the directions.

I also wish it had a capability to visually display the traceroute on top of a world map.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We installed PingPlotter to help diagnose intermittent connectivity problems from geographically distributed lab sites to our AWS-hosted website. PingPlotter helped us demonstrate clearly and visually when there were problems. We chose it specifically for a capability not found in many similar lightweight tools in that it allows measuring connectivity to a specific TCP port whereas many programs only allows to measure regular ping, i.e. ICMP packets.

"Great for Troubleshooting"

What do you like best?

Ping Plotter allows me to very simply verify connectivity. or i can watch my equipment be unreachable. A lot of the time i can watch a device go up and down over 24 hours (it can do more, but thats generally all i get to)

What do you dislike?

As of right now, there is nothing i dislike

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are managing remote locations over the internet, this is a great troubleshooting tool. it allows you to establish where to start troubleshooting. If you can't reach your remote location, check the wiring, then check the internet connection. If you can get there but something in the remote office is not working check your equipment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My company(ISP) has equipment outside of our network. when they are having issues ping plotter is my first go to program. I can tell if another ISP or passthrough is having issues. This at times prompts me to make a route change, while other times its a call to that ISP to start a ticket. Ping Plotter has saved us many hours of troubleshooting and also allows us to show another ISP that the issues is theirs.
