LOGGER

This page is an old example program for counting page usage. The Dragonnorth Group also has a LOGGER application for the internet of things.

LOGGER performs periodic PINGs to multiple hosts and logs the results. LOGGER is a simple command line program that runs on Windows platforms. It is likely that LOGGER will run on UNIX platforms but that has not been tested.

The LOGGER program contains simple usage information. Invoke the program without arguments to see the usage information and other instructions.

The LT.BAT batch file was used to invoke LOGGER and produce this typical output:
