Optional audio alert for continuous pings

  • Create an Issue

Just thought of this.

Add a checkbox to the continuous ping dialog box to alert when the IP address is responding after 10 (?) successful replies.

If the undocked option is enabled, maybe include a visual flash on the taskbar.

It seems to be interesting. Could you give more details on when you would use this. Perhaps I could execute a task.

Well...specifically, this morning, I had a server down for an unscheduled maintenance at a remote location. So, I set a continuous ping inside RDM, in a pop-out window, to watch for the server coming back online. Of course, the pop-up window was buried behind various windows as I was sidetracked by other tasks.

I wasn't notified when the server was back online, until I remembered to check on it.

So..I was thinking an audio and/or visual alert would be helpful in these circumstances. Maybe a checkbox in the pop-up windows to enable an audio/visual alert after the target server/device responses successfully after 10 continuous pings.

Thank you for the details.
