Extension Goal:

The default behavior of PingPlotter Pro is to use the reverse-resolved target name on the summary graph. The problem with this is that any friendlier names you might have entered are not used there, which can make it more difficult to decipher.

Before installing this script, entering a domain name for a target would show that domain name in the trace graph, but it would show the reverse-resolved name on the summary graph (which may or may not be the same as the one you entered). After installing this script, the summary graphs will show the one you entered.

This can make your summary screen easier to read.

Required PingPlotter Pro version

This extension requires PingPlotter Pro 3.00.2p or later.
