PING BUG UPDATE:

I have finally tracked down the ping error some users have been experiencing.

Apparently Java and the ICMP protocol (ping) have never played nice together.

The Android OS uses the Java implementation of isReachable to ping. The isReachable method does not use the ICMP protocol, but rather uses the slow TCP version of ECHO on port 7 to see if a system is available.

Consequently, as a result of the UDP/TCP port 7 check, some systems cannot be pinged. If you cannot get a ping monitor to work, it IS NOT bMonitor. It is a limitation of both Java and the Android API. The only other option in Java and the Android SDK is to write a custom ping routine using the C/C++ NDK libraries. However, that would require too much time for a free application.

Having said that, I have decided that I will leave the ping routine in place because it will work for some people. However, if too many people leave negative feedback about ping not working for them, I am going to remove that feature from the application.

Things to check if ping is not working for you:
  - Make sure your server is up.

  - Download "Terminal Emulator" from the market. This is a free command line tool. Try pinging your system using this. If it does not ping using this tool, it will not ping in bMonitor.

  - Try pinging your system from a workstation. If it does not ping from your workstation, it will not ping in bMonitor.

  - If you are using the domain name in the host box, use the IP address to eliminate any DNS issues.

  - Check for any typos in the configuration. I have literally had hundreds of users complain ping does not work only to point out a typo in their configuration.

I cannot stress this enough. If you have eliminated all these possibilities and you still cannot get a ping monitor to work, it IS NOT bMonitor. Your system simply cannot be pinged using the isReachable method of the Android SDK. Try using a port monitor instead.

If you feel I am wrong, I would ask that you not give negative feedback, but rather uninstall bMonitor and try one of the other free and excellent server monitors available on the market.

Rubbish - I do not recommend! The client application is incorrect, there is a loop in it. The server-side app checks http and https ports only. Tested on HTC Desire

by Ruediger the 4/24/2011

Great App! Works like a charm. Sending email for an alert would be great.

by Chuck the 4/12/2011

For free, this is a pretty good app. Having blue letters on black buttons leaves you guessing what they do. Having problems monitoring one website.

by Max the 1/21/2011

Some sort of status would be nice on each of the items being checked. Other than that works nicely!

by Chris the 1/18/2011

Great small app that does what its supposed to do. Small and sweet. Worth paying for.

by Samuel the 12/16/2010

Ping is broken, I can ping from other apps and terminal but not this app. Please fix.

Great app. Excellent support. Worth way more than the suggested donation

by nerdoid the 7/21/2010

Would be very useful to add an option so it only operates when on a wifi network for those with limited data or no data plan

A very reliable sysadmin tool. Great app!
