San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2012
EMCO Software, a leading provider of network monitoring software for Windows, has announced the availability of EMCO Ping Monitor version 4.7.14. The new version of the application is compatible with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, including both the x86 and x64 versions of these platforms. EMCO Ping Monitor is a .NET application that is now compatible with .NET Framework version 4.5 included into the latest Windows releases.
EMCO Ping Monitor is ping monitoring software designed to help network administrators and IT professionals to monitor the availability of network hosts. It uses ICMP pings to check statuses of the monitored network connections. The application is designed to work in the 24/7 mode to track statuses of multiple network connections simultaneously. If a connection is lost or restored, the application can notify the network administrators using various notification methods including e-mail, Windows System Tray, sound and other types of notifications. In addition to tracking network connection statuses, the application also collects and displays information about the connection response time and the connection stability using the metrics available for the ICMP protocol.
Network administrators can easily integrate EMCO Ping Monitor with other administrative tools by using the custom actions functionality provided by the application. The application can work as a host monitor that executes predefined custom actions when the connection to a host is lost or restored. Network administrators can configure the application to execute any utility or script as a custom action and pass to it the parameters that define the connection state. For example, the application can be integrated with an external SMS system to send SMS notifications to different recipients when the monitored connections are lost or restored.
"EMCO Ping Monitor version 4.7.14 is ready to work in enterprise environments. Network administrators can install it on their server machines, including Windows Server 2012, to run the application in the 24/7 mode and track statuses of important network connections. A single copy of the application can monitor over a thousand connections simultaneously when started on a typical modern PC", Thorarinn Oskarsson, CEO at EMCO Software, says.
In addition supporting Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the latest version of the application includes a number of new and improved features. The most important improvements include the options to group, sort and filter the displayed hosts by different parameters. In particular, network administrators using the latest version of the application can group, sort and filter hosts by their connection statuses to display the hosts with failed connections only.
