Easy to use and works.
I am on the fence with this application. Everything about this application makes me want to recommend it, as it accomplishes what it sets out to do, and does it well. However, there is one MASSIVE glaring issue that holds it back from being useful - it fails to retain any/all of your settings. Let us pretend that you have a list of 10 servers/IPs you wish to monitor. During the course of your work, you might either need to reboot your machine or perhaps accidentally close the program. When you get back into the program, all of your servers/IPs have been forgotten, and there are no favorites or quick-add options to place your servers back into the monitoring queue. The basic design of the program does not require install due to the use of .NET, which I suppose is nice. However, it does not store/maintain a configuration file in the execution directory, so all settings are lost upon exit. Additionally, there is no provided mechanism for exporting your configuration for a future import. Until such time as this major oversight is resolved, I cannot recommend this program.
Been using this for a couple months, now, and have found it very useful. Not only that, but the developer has been very receptive and responds to feedback with requests for enhancement (RFE) as well as bug reports. Two thumbs up! :-)
