    Best freeware IP monitor

    Im looking for a freeware ip monitor.

    I need to repeatedly ping at least one ip address and produce a graph of the results.

    I know there are tons of apps that do this but which is the best?

    Is this what your after:

    Iptotal is an IP traffic monitor. It listens to a network interface in non-promiscuous mode, and measures IP bandwidth usage. After the specified number of seconds, the average throughput is printed at total, input and output usage.

    Smokeping is pretty good - it'll graph over time and flag latency. Easy to set up to - single config file. SmokePing - About SmokePing

    Nagios is extremely good, but it takes a fair while longer to get set up.

    ipcheck will only ping once every 15 mins without a licence

    Smokeping looks interesting but I just want to do this quickly and in windows

    Do you really need the graph, or would a log + email if a host goes down suffice?

    I find Peer Monitor great for keeping an eye on things from my desktop. Green light - up and responding to pings, red light - panic (or go switch back on the AP that has been unplugged by a helpful member of staff).
