Test speeds and document outages and network behavior with graphs and detailed logs. You can end flaky network nightmares right now by catching them in the act and providing irrefutable documentation of what has been happening.Network Outage Log
Network Logger is an automated URL testing tool for documenting outages of both your internet connection and web sites. It also produces charts and logs of URL speeds over extended periods.
Some customers have told us of interesting uses they have for Network Logger. One network contractor uses it to monitor wifi systems he installs on remote drilling rigs and to provide statistics to his clients in the energy industry documenting his service. Another uses Network Logger to monitor a weak satellite link in Africa, to determine the best times of day to connect.
You can export URL speed graphs or the network outage log and quickly show tech support what you are experiencing in a way that enables them to understand what's going on at a glance. Everyone we know who has shown Network Logger output to their service provider has had their problems solved immediately.
An optional speech synthesis feature announces when your internet connection goes down and up which can be handy when you are working on your network in another room and saves you from walking back and forth to check your network status.

You can use Network Logger to graph the speed of your internet connection over time if you enter an appropriate speed test URL. The manual provides details on how to do this.
Here is a review from the Canadian app store that demonstrates a real world use of Network Logger:
"My DSL has been dropping its connection (losing sync) about a ten times a day. This wouldn't be a huge problem for just casual surfing, but it brings down my VPN connection every time and everything running over that connection, which is a big hassle. Network Logger has been invaluable in documenting for my ISP just how frequently my connection goes down. When I called my ISP with this information, I got to 2nd level support almost immediately, without even being asked if it's plugged in, or to turn it off and turn it on again.
I'm getting a backup cable connection later this week, but last time I used this company a few years ago, they were providing less than 50% of advertised speeds, so I'm looking forward to also using Network Logger to monitor that I'm getting what I pay for.
All in all, a great tool with lots of different uses. Very handy to have in your toolbox whether you need to constantly monitor a site, or just to have around for occasional use when your network or site starts behaving oddly."
