CCSchmidt Network Monitoring Software and Utilities

On this page you will find my network software based on SNMP covering traffic and utilisation monitoring, forward database retrieval from switches, as well as squid log analysis and network performance measuring with variable size ICMP requests (pings) and lots more. Please excuse my use of ads on this page. My software is popular enough that I have to finance on average 5 Gigs of traffic per month. I would be grateful if you showed your appreciation.

Thank you.

IS Freeware NOW.


Interface Traffic Indicator
is a graph utility to measure incoming and outgoing traffic on an interface in bits/sec, bytes/sec or utilization. Works on all SNMP-capable devices (computers, NICs, switches, routers, etc.) with adjustable poll intervall down to three seconds. You can use this program in a professional network environment to monitor selected network interfaces (even backplane ports if the device provides the information) or you can monitor your home network or cable/modem/ISDN connection to the internet.

Performance Pinging
Performance Pinging, a tool for testing availability, response times and performance using ICMP. It writes data to a text file for later interpretation with e.g. Excel. Allows you to change IP address, ICMP timeout and data size during runtime. Comes with a nice little graph for realtime testing. Now includes PerfCopy for testing network performance by copying files to UNC locations.

MultiPing Grapher
MultiPing Grapher is a further development of Perfping with the ability to graph up to 10 different ICMP results. Includes logging and average calculation.

Squid Efficiency Analyzer
Squid Efficiency Analyzer interprets a Squid log (native) to determine how much traffic can be retrieved from the cache and how much comes from the web servers in the internet. Tested with log files from Squid 2.5 STABLE 5 for Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003.

This little gadget will try to retrieve the forwarding table entries (Mac to interface number) of switches (layer 2 devices). This comes in handy when you want to know to which interface of a switch a particular NIC (e.g. computer) is attached to. Now suppports parameters for command line use.

Unix Timestamp Converter
UTC is a little utility with only two functions: convert a Unix timestamp (seconds since January 1st 1970 to date) to a human readable DateTime format and vice versa. So simple it does not need a help file or further information.
Includes Delphi source code

Screenshot Grebba
Screenshot Grebba is a little tool that makes screenshots of up to 10 different program windows and displays them on its own webpage. I use it on a server with various monitoring programs to get an overview of what is happening in the network.

Stormfinder is a little utility that requests non-unicast packet statistics from all interfaces of a network device using SNMP. After requesting the number of incoming NU-packets (i.e. broadcasts and multicasts) it does so again after 10 seconds and calculates the difference.



Missions for FSX

Norwegian Mail Delivery

This is the first mission I created for FSX.
Starting at Vlesland Airport (Trondheim, Norway) you will have to land at 11 airports along the northern Norwegian coast. Drop your mail bags and take off for the next destination. Waypoints will lead your way. Your final destination is Tromso.
The time is winter, early in the morning. The weather is fine with a cold front approaching from the west.

You start from Nairobi International Airport (HKJK) with equipment for a group of mountaineers who intend on climbing Mt. Kenya. Fly to the airport of Lake Naivasha (HKNV), pick up the group and bring them to Nanyuki, the closest airport to their base camp. Fly past Mt. Kenya on the eastern slope to show your guests what they are up against.
