Jun 10, 2016 - PingPlotter 5.01 Beta Available

If your PingPlotter 5 experience has been muddled by interface freezes, slow load times, or memory issues, this is the release for you. We've adjusted some PingPlotter innards, and everything runs more efficiently. Especially when multiple targets are involved!

The downside of changing PingPlotter's core is unintended consequences. Those may or may not exist, and that uncertainty is why you're seeing a "beta label" instead of an "official release' stamp. We do know this build performs better than any Version 5 before it. It's loaded with improvements, and if you can handle some unknown, we'd totally appreciate your help testing the build. Email beta@pingplotter.com to let us know how it goes. Thanks for the help!

Apr 21, 2016 - PingPlotter 5 Officially Released

Making network troubleshooting suck less. That's why PingPlotter exists. The tool has been making that happen since it started graphing pings in the late 90's. It's come a long way, but there's always room for improvement. Some users were having trouble managing alerts. Others needed easier long-term monitoring or a Windows Service that was less of a hassle. Today we're proudly announcing a new version that addresses these issues and more.

PingPlotter 5 is completely reengineered for a better experience. It includes a friendlier alert system and a Windows Service that just works. Setting up long-term monitoring is a thing of the past too. In Version 5, all it takes to trace indefinitely is a click of a button. You'll also find more precise (sub-millisecond) latency measurements and an interface that's easier on the eyes. As usual, there's more. All the details are on the announcement page, and if you're interested in an inside perspective on the project, a letter from Pingman Tools' founder is available in the release notes.

A PingPlotter that does more work for you is an exciting step toward better network troubleshooting. We're grateful for all the support so far. Thanks for riding along!
