a Connectivity and Device Status Monitoring
Tool. Use ipPulse to
monitor the status of IPv4
connected devices (computers,
routers, switches, printers) on
any IPv4 connected network.
ipPulse can use one or two tests
including ping, TCP Port
connection, or SNMP to poll and
check the network connectivity
of your list of devices. ipPulse
alerts you to failures using
several methods ranging from
audible messages to email
notification - send alert emails
to your phone. Logging is also
Test Methods: each IPv4
address can be tested with a Primary test and
optionally a Secondary test.
Primary test can ping the target
to see if it responds or connect
to a TCP port* to see if the
connection is accepted.
Secondary Test has three modes:
disabled, connect to a TCP port*
to see if the connection is
accepted or it can use SNMP
v1/v2c to find out if a network
interface is down.

assignable on a per-target basis.
SNMP queries can be made for obtaining
more extensive data from the target
host. ipPulse includes a number
of OID presets and 12 user defined
OIDs. Example: you can obtain MAC
addresses for every interface from
an SNMP enabled host.
