Ping HostMonitor

Ping HostMonitor


Ping HostMonitor is an Android app monitoring the status of network hosts, its services and communication links. It runs in the background and will alert you with a notification if any of your monitored system becomes unreachable.

Contrary to many other “pingers” HostMonitor knows when a host is not supposed to be reachable, and also monitors the network connection of the Android telephone itself. This way false alarms are avoided and you can monitor a different set of hosts depending of what network or VPN you and your Android device are connected to. At work you monitor your internal work machines, home you monitor your Internet connection and so forth. The last known state of your hosts are remembered and when you reconnect to a new network, monitoring is resumed with the new set of machines. Test methods are fully configurable using tcp or udp probe packets (icmp not supported as it requires root privileges).

Works as described Does just what it says. My only complaint is that the server list always wants to fight me when I'm scrolling through my list. It keeps trying to go back to the top of the list.

Black screen on startup followed by crash Had setup a site, all looked good, then switched away from app. Next time I loaded, black screen except for title bar - (no sites shown etc). Going into 'properties' and add site causes a crash - So yep useless as it is right now.

Very very nice How can I keep this application running even when phone is in standby or sleep or whatever causes my ultra bucket vpn by anchor Inc to turn off when I am not using my phone for a little while. ANYONE know of a real deal vpn that doesn't shut off without permission?
