Pingbar – Connectivity Monitor (75% discount)
Pingbar is a small menu bar app, that constantly checks your connection to a server and port.
What can it do for me? –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– – Let it check your internet connection in a public WiFi hotspot, like your favorite coffee shop. Visiting a bunch of links, that are apparently all dead and it’s actually just the WiFi? Know immediately when your connection has a problem. – Use it as a server/service monitor. Check if a certain service on your server is responding, like your webserver, mailserver or any other service that opens a TCP port. Get instantaneous notifications on your desktop, when something’s wrong on that port!
Features –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– – Custom host and port – Custom checking interval – Silent status indication via menu bar icon – Eye-catching notifications via OS X notification center – Checks the whole connection from you to any server you like - Works with any open TCP port
Note: While the name may suggest that an (ICMP echo) ping is performed, the app actually creates a socket connection to the server/port. ICMP ping may be implemented in future versions.
