Konst Pinger is a software tool that can be used in order to trace of ping a specified hosts, configure a few options and enable or disable logging.
Smooth setup and clean interface
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to download or add any third-party products and it does not last longer than a few moments. After you complete it, you come face to face with a simple and clean GUI, which only includes a few buttons and a pane in which to display a graph or some information.
Although no Help contents are supported, it becomes pretty clear that both power and novice users can find their way around it, without facing any kind of difficulties.
Trace, ping and bring up Whois information, and configure particular settings
This program enables you to easily input a host in the appropriate box and start pinging it with just a click of the button. A custom and color-coded graphical representation of the ping is available, while you can also adjust the retry time period (expressed as seconds).
In addition to that, you can easily switch to a trace mode, so as to view a list in the main window with information such as host name, IP address, time, network and country. Whois information can also be displayed, just by clicking an item present in the aforementioned list.
It is possible to set up SMS alerts, if a ping has a lower or greater value than the user-defined one, as well as send the utility to the system tray so as to make in non-obtrusive, enable logging in one single file and viewing the latter.
To sum up, Konst Pinger is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to pinging and tracing a specified website. The interface is suitable to all user categories, the response time is pretty good, yet you should know that in our tests, the app failed more than once and in different circumstances. Moreover, we also have to take into account that it has not been updated in quite a while.
