See the route packets follow

Visualize the network path between your device and a final destination to quickly show whether problems are related to local networks, internet service providers, or something in between.

Watch performance as it happens

When network issues occur, start tracing with PingPlotter for an instant look at current performance. Continue watching to see PingPlotter's output change along with network conditions.

Export data

Save collected data into a .pp2 file for future analysis. PingPlotter Standard and Professional can load .pp2 files created by any user.

Save as image command

When you zoom in to the perfect picture, you may want to save it - so you can post it someplace, send it in an email, or create a web page. PingPlotter saves images in .BMP, .GIF and .PNG format.

Insert comments

Annotate timeline graphs to keep track of things like planned outages, configuration changes, or anything else that matters.

Run as a native Windows service

Auto-start PingPlotter when your computer boots up by running as a service.

Trace IPv6 addresses

Ping any internet address by specifying IPv4 or IPv6 protocol.

Share on pingplotter.com

Post test results to the web. Submissions include a screenshot and downloadable .pp2 file. Everything you need to show others how your network is performing.

Dynamic statistics

Focus on a time period and show the statistics for that period. PingPlotter Professional even lets you make up your own statistics and formulas!

Auto-save collected data

Monitor perpetually and keep the data you want. Choose between keeping everything, only keeping traces that exceed a certain number of minutes, or keeping only when you specify.

High performance, low overhead engine

PingPlotter is built to minimize CPU use. This gives you the capability of continuous monitoring while you're doing other things, such as playing a game, or trading stocks. When a problem occurs, you can look to see what's happening on your network.

Uses multiple threads for increased performance

PingPlotter uses multiple threads to increase performance and accuracy. A complete 1 sample trace can be done in about 5-10% of the time that it takes to do a trace with the Windows "TRACERT" command (usually less than 1 second for PingPlotter vs 15-45 seconds for TraceRT).
