SMTPing was available as a giveaway on March 26, 2013!
SMTPing is a network monitoring tool designed to keep you informed about the status of all the nodes in your LAN/WAN, having them all at once on your screen. Most monitoring tools are used to monitor servers and/or gateways, but with SMTPing you can have PCs, Multi-Function centers and even mobile devices at the blink of an eye! You don't get more info of the true basics: if the node is up or down.
SMTPing comes with a basic template that shows about 38 groups with up to 5 nodes each on a 1280x960 pixel screen. This template, on a 2560x1440 WQHD flat panel has proven to be enough to show up to 330 nodes in 90 groups at full screen with no zoom-out!
In addition you can see the line quality for a certain group to see the intermittence/falls within the last 24 hours. If you want to see details for a single node, it is as simple as clicking over a node. You'll see how many failures have been detected during the last significant periods, from actual hour to previous week!
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or better; Intel Atom with Hyper Threading or Dual Core. Core 2 Duo, Athlon X4 or better is recommended; at least 512k RAM, but depending on the amount of nodes you decide to monitor, 1GB or more is recommended; about 300 MiB HD space, but the more nodes you monitor, the more disk space is needed to keep historic data, about 4 GiB are recommended for the first 6 months of historical data
you should have warned me that this program would install a copy of the Chrome browser. I do not want to have *any* browser on my machine other than FreFox. I am very disappointed with GOTD for allowing this to happen without warning!! In the future,
