I have 3 servers that I need to (visually) monitor all the time. Currently there is a "method" using 3 ping -t processes running in separate command prompt windows and I am trying to replace it with something better.
The requirement is to monitor 3 (or more) servers, using ping, on a Windows XP workstation, with no keyboard and mouse access. I am thinking of a dashboard tool with a traffic light system but a graph-based interface is also acceptable. Alerts and logging are nice to have but entirely optional. It must be freeware.
So far I have a short list
- DreamSys Server Monitor (thanks NateSubra!)
- Colasoft Ping Tool
- MultiPing Grapher
but is there anything better ?
EDIT: I understand why some people recommended to go for a "proper" monitoring solution, yes, it might prove more appropriate some day but a ping-based solution is the only requirement today. I believe in the KISS principle - there is no need for "you are asking the wrong question, the right question is ..."
