)-- EMCO Software, a provider of software solutions for computer network management, today announced the release of Ping Monitor freeware tool, targeted at monitoring connection to servers and desktops in LAN/WAN and Internet. Ping Monitor is a new name of the freeware product line from EMCO, known before as noPing Inspector.
Ping Monitor is a free tool that can be used for automatic 24/7 connection monitoring to network hosts by sending pings with regular intervals and analyzing replies. It is able to automatically detect connection outages and restores and execute various actions on these events, including e-mail (and SMS through Email-to-SMS services) notifications and launching configured commands. The available release of Ping Monitor contains all features of noPing Inspector and is recommended to replace of any old installation.
"Ping Monitor is successor of noPing Inspector tool. To emphasize this and simplify migration we even kept releases numbering. The new name for this tool was suggested by Malcolm Bauer, a system administrator and old supporter of our host monitoring product. We think that the new name better describes the current functionality and is fully adjusted with our plans for future improvements", said Thorarin Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software.
"I was glad to see new features introduced in latest releases, especially the extended monitoring support, custom actions and ping statistics. These features help me not only to detect connection outages, but also to make an active connection monitoring. The new name is more descriptive and should help other people to discover this tool", said Malcolm Bauer, system administrator and freeware evangelist.
EMCO Ping Monitor is available as a fully-functional freeware. It can run under Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2008, 2003 and 2000 both x86 and x64 platforms.
