Today I found one tool called as “PowerPing”, I found this tool while searching if there is any available OSS that can generate graph when ping to network.

Look like it have lot of features and as advance tools of ping utilities as it claimed.

The only withdraw is tool lack of documentation and only working on Windows CMD. I did try with powershell and git-windows, seem it does’t work properly. So, you must use it via CMD only.

You may find PowerPing on github here , have fun with it!
