What is PingDoctor?
Playing a game and lagging? Video streams constantly buffering? Poor video conferencing performance? Find out what's going on with PingDoctor.
PingDoctor is an advanced network route analyzer and ping sampling utility built for high performance and deep insight. Use PingDoctor to record samples for each hop on the way to any Internet or network destination and collect detailed analytics to help you locate any issues along that route, such as packet loss, latency (lag), jitter or mis-routing.
Highly-detailed sample graphs can be navigated with ease and are recorded in a linear-stacked fashion which allows you to quickly gain insight into any problem-causing hosts along the way to your destination. Latency and loss are highlighted for quick identification and network jitter is recorded at each sample. Of course, vitals such as average, minimum and maximum latency are also recorded. The afore-mentioned information can also be calculated based on any portion of a recoded trace session.
PingDoctor is able to diagnose using both ICMP and UDP methods, in various configurations.
ICMP support is commonly used for general network troubleshooting, route testing and performance monitoring. It requires no configuration and is able to provide a good general health overview of a route to a destination.
