Ping HostMonitor - Overview

HostMonitor is an Android app monitoring the status of hosts, services and communication links. It runs in the background and will alert you with a notification if any of your monitored system becomes unreachable.

Contrary to many other “pingers” HostMonitor knows when a host is not supposed to be reachable, and also monitors the network connection of the Android telephone itself. This way false alarms are avoided and you can monitor a different set of hosts depending of what network or VPN you and your Android device are connected to. At work you monitor your internal work machines, home you monitor your Internet connection and so forth. The last known state of your hosts are remembered and when you reconnect to a network, monitoring is resumed with the new set of machines.
