Featur requests
Dima Gurov, 2009-12-03 11:34:26
A few features I would be glad to see in this app:
1. Perform first check of new host immediately after saving (not only after check interval)
2. Feature to scan html page on given URL in order to find given word or find it's absence, for example "Error"
3. Show "Down since", "Up since" time, average ping delay, calculate uptime, downtime, percents and so on
4. Save log file not only on exit, but periodically, in order to analyze data by external tools
5. Make app portable (don't use registry, but ini or xml or db file in programs folder) - but it's already good to have save/restore DB feature.

Hello

Is it possible to make the program run as a windows service ? So no user has to be logged on to run the check host program.

PS: Great tool !

Regards,

Kevin

Hello Kevin,

no, that's not possible at the moment, but already on the feature wish list for future versions.

Best regards
Andreas

Hello Levi,

sorry, but no new version till now.

Unfortunately I don't have very much time at the moment for working on Check Host.

But there will be a new version anyway - I just can't tell you when.

Best regards
Andreas

Re: Featur requests - ping bursts evaluation
Andy Salay, 2009-12-19 12:28:31
Hello Andreas,
you know there is a heap of free pingers on the web.
I am searching something lightweight, yet powerful and functional, with logging ability and mail notifications. And it is much harder to find such program.
Your program seems very promising!
Thank you for such an app.

Please, to be more usable to me (pinging through networks with some loss - wifi), i would really appreciate exactly what Dima Gurov described.

<quote>7. Switch to error state after defined number of fails (maybe these checks should be performed more frequently, than regular)
</quote>

It would be great if in config dialog was option how many pings in one burst (I think these ranges would be sufficient: 1 - 5), delay between pings of the same burst (say 0,1s - 5s).

This will allow to make greater delay between the checking stages (1 minute for example), to use less traffic.

And better estimation of the "link quality", with the help of this:
It would be perfect if the app will evaulate the rate of success of each burst. For example: 5 pings in burst - 6 possibilities 100% loss, 80, 60, 40 , 20, 0% loss.

And some colour codes for say four configurable thresholds:
0% loss - green;
0% < loss <= 15% yellowish green;
15% < loss <= 40% yellow;
40% < loss < 100% orange;
100% loss - red.

And a configurable % loss threshold for an email notification.
That would be awesome, and it will make your tool perfectly suitable for small local wifi networks.
In such networks there is often some loss, and pinger is unsuitable for checking services - for example 1 ping each 10 seconds is generating false alarms.

and this would be nice:
9. Ability to disable (not only delete) checks


Thank you in advance...

Regards,
Andy Salay

Hello Dima,

first thank you very much for your suggestions.

Your point 1 has been done already with the new update 1.0.9 released few minutes ago.

I've added your other points to our feature wish list for future versions.

Thanks again
Andreas

Few more requests:
6. Use 3rd state for unknown service states (before check) - Yellow with question mark
7. Switch to error state after defined number of fails (maybe these checks should be performed more frequently, than regular)
8. Show in tooltip names of failed checks
9. Ability to disable (not only delete) checks
10. Ability to clone (duplicate) checks in order to create similar checks.
