Performance Pinging Version 2.0.1

Perfping.exe is a tool that allows you to ping a host continuously or with a single ping using different data volumes. It's a tool for testing availability, response times and performance using ICMP. Writes data to a text file for later interpretation with e.g. Excel. Allows you to change IP address, ICMP timeout and data size during runtime. Comes with a nice little graph for realtime testing.

Now includes PerfCopy for testing network performance by copying files to UNC locations.
How does it work and what does it do?
Performance Pinging can give an estimate on the performance of the route to your host. You can change the ping intervall from 2 to 30 seconds using various timeouts. The timeout is always smaller than the pinging interval. Results are written to log window and log file if so chosen. Unreachable hosts have a value of 0 ms.

The analysis function sends various pings, 10 each of 10 bytes, 100 bytes, 500 bytes, 1 kbytes, 10 kbytes, 50 kybytes and 64 kbytes. The round trip times are shown with the total and average times.

What's New in This Release:

· added the file 'hostfile.txt' that holds the last 10 pinged addresses
Performance Pinging 2.0.1 is 100% CLEAN, which means it does not contain any form of malware, including but not limited to: spyware, viruses, trojans and backdoors.
