Re: 3rd party network monitoring

One app I like a lot is Ping Plotter, but it only runs on Windows, so it
isn't good for remote monitoring. We do use it for some things,
however. I like the detailed traceroute / latency visualization it
has. It also has a hard time with a lot (100+) nodes being monitored.
SmokePing works well, but lacks detail in the form of traceroute.

To them "simple" means it's just a ping check. They won't

I was pondering creating a "smoke ping collective". Get a bunch of
guys to agree to run smokeping and monitor each other. That's a
great tool for visualizing changes in latency and works just as well
with ICMP as with HTTP.
There is this really awesome project from RIPE (like usual ;)
Please check, and start using RIPE TTM: http://www.ripe.net/ttm/
