Couple of things. First, it's probably not hard to write a pping in
think it's great
if we get other versions.
Secondly, for anyone who seriously wants to localize delay in their
what-have-you, I have other ways of doing that and I'm happy to discuss
you but there will be $ involved.
to make a sort of
web page display for pping and I do plan to open source it when it's not
too embarassing but I'd be happy to connect with other people with a
serious interest in visualizing the
data in a meaningful way.
Those of you who have not looked at pping should do so.
See: http://pollere.net/pping.html for a description, and look at the
slides linked to on that page.
In particular, it would be sweet to run this on a home router, as you
can monitor latency simultaneously in either direction. Then we can
point a finger properly at the ISP or at the WiFi in the home network
(encouraging either/both to get fixed).
Anyone interested in undertaking such a project with me, please drop me
The only downside is that pping is a C++ app, which makes it big for a
home router, so it can't be used on old small home routers due to
footprint issues; but many current home routers would have space for it.
I've just made one of the tools I use to measure network delay
available with a GPLv2 license. Perhaps it will be of intererst.
