There are 3 sets of tools which are collectively part of the PingER suite:
Only the first set is absolutely necessary unless you want to inspect
the data collected locally.
It is also very valuable if you can run a reverse traceroute server at
your site, for more on reverse traceroute servers see
Reverse Traceroute Servers.
The data monitoring & collection tools, including pinger2.pl
(replaces timeping.pl since Jun 2005)
tool which provides an HTML marked up report of the latest set of pings
The traceroute.pl tool that provides a web CGI script to
provide reverse traceroutes and pings.
You can also access a Web form at
that provides access to the various metrics
(RTT, loss, jitter, reachability, MOS etc.)
the measurements gathered by the archive site from
all collection sites.
