Tag sessions with a name

Tag sessions with a name - 03/20/19 01:52 PM

I tend to have sessions going by IP rather than DNS because I don't trust DNS for a given session or don't have a valid FQDN. It would be nice to put a tag or name on a session so I could tell what that IP was. It gets confusing with a couple IPs I don't remember sitting there.

Hi Fallon,

Thanks for reaching out to us!

Having the option to use custom descriptions/names is absolutely necessary for a great PingPlotter experience - which is why we've already included it!

To create a custom description, you can right-click any target ( or even a hop within a single trace tab/window ), then hover over the host name and select 'Edit DNS Name'. We have a few more details about this here as well:

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

All the best,
-Austin
