A few months back I realised the need for a Ping Application, because of this I realised that we needed that in the industry. I haven’t seen anything like it before and I thought it would be a good idea in order to check the responsiveness of a website and having +10 sites this gives a good foundation to check whether all websites are up or not.
So using some C# magic it was a treat. The finished application looked like this:
I am looking forward to getting some new things done on it. I will create a tray-icon for it so it can run in the background and ping every 10-15 minutes and then come up with an alert if one site is down. I will including this also make a feature either Twitter or SMS (Using Tropo) that will notify a site is down, I think I will go with SMS. But we will see. Just a short update.
