It keeps pinging the specified hosts or IPs after a fixed interval of time, set by you. It organizes the list of IPs in a pane and then shows various parameters such as success or fail count from there. And the best part about this free software is that, it organizes the ping stats for a specific host separately in a pane.

There are some other features in it apart from pinging. You can also use the software to trace route and DNS lookup.

MParallel is a Command line tool to ping multiple IP addresses together. This command line software takes IP addresses or host names as Command line arguments and then it shows the ping stats of the hosts one by one. MParallel actually doesn’t do anything additional. The software actually meant to run multiple tasks in parallel in Windows. And ping is the best example for that. You can use the ping utility of Windows to ping multiple IP addresses together with the help of MParallel. Each command can be specified in it by separating it by colon.
It’s very simple to run parallel ping commands using MParallel. Just grab its ZIP file from the above link and then extract it to some folder of your choice. After that, open the command window in the same folder and then run the following command.
MParallel.exe --count=3: ping.exe -n 2 192.168.1.1 : ping.exe -n 2 ilovefreesoftware.com : ping.exe -n 2 google.com
In the above command I have tried to ping 3 destinations and the software has done that pretty quickly. Do note that in the “count” switch I have added 3, because I wanted to ping 3 destinations. If you want to ping more number of IP address or hosts, then you will have to specify the number of parallel commands you want to run using the software. And accordingly specify the command and separate them with colon (:). See the above screenshot for more details.
These were some very good software to ping multiple IP addresses together. All of the software that I have mentioned in the above article do what they say. And what I really like about some of them is that you can export the ping result and see the ping graph. Personally, I really like Colasoft Ping Tool, and PingInfoView to be the best software among my list. So, if you are looking for some free software to ping multiple IPs, then this list will be helpful.
