PingTime is an application that, in concert with OverTime, shows Ping response times from a Cisco router on the network to IP addresses. PingTime works both interactively from a web browser and on a scheduled basis. The PingTime executable should therefore live in the same directory as devdtl and devmst.


PingTime allows a network administrator that uses PingTime from a server in city A, to record ping response times from a Cisco router in city B to a test IP address of machines that may be in cities C, D and E. These results are probably quite different to the administrator ping'ing the machines from the server in city A to cities C, D and E. If your network has Cisco routers in each city, then results from these cities' routers' perspectives can be obtained.
