Ping Tester overview

Version 1.7 released at 02/22/2020

Using the ping command from the Windows console, you can easily check the availability of your site or IP address. But if you are not a fan of the console, then the Ping Monitor can serve as a worthy alternative. This tiny Windows 11 and Windows 10 gadget will show you whether your domain is available or not. All you need is to enter the name of the domain you want to verify, or an IP address, and click the “Run test” button. Ping Tester supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. If all tests are successfully passed, the gadget displays a corresponding message, otherwise the gadget displays the number of failed tests.

Ping Tester has a minimum of settings, but no more is needed. Among the basic settings, you can customize the number of tests the application should perform, change the buffer size, and change the time interval between two consecutive ping requests and set the time at which exceeding ping will be considered failed.

Although Ping Tester did not show any additional information, nevertheless it is very useful because it does not put a strain on the computer, as it uses a low amount of CPU and system memory. Furthermore, Ping Tester works both on 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
