Extension Goal:

Sometimes, during a collection period, you might change the "engine" you're using to collect data, or maybe the packet size. This extension will create a comment in your collected data when you make one of these changes:
  • Change of the packet size
  • Switching the named configuration
If the change makes a difference in latency or packet loss, you can see that a change was made by looking at the time graph.

Required PingPlotter Pro version

This extension requires PingPlotter Pro 3.00.3p beta 9 or higher. It will *not* work on the released 3.00.2p version.

Installation Instructions
  • Download the attachment from this post (link near the title). The file will be named "Log Engine Changes.ppx".
  • Save it in your "c:\Program Files\Pingplotter Pro\scripts" directory (or the appropriate path if you've not installed to that location).
  • Close and restart PingPlotter Pro.
Now, whenever you make one of the listed changes, look at the time graph for a comment to see the change.
