    Hi all,

    Since Pingdevice.com is down since a couple of days I hope some of you could suggest me an alternative? I need to ping thousands of urls each day. Pingdevice was great, but unfortunately not working at this time.. :(

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah, pinging is simple on the surface for sure. But once you start scaling into the thousands of links and multiple services it starts getting tricky. IPs will be banned, routes will go down, your PC gets tied up, etc. Who knows why they went down, but it isn't easy to keep it up. We had our share of growing pains, especially over the first month. Thankfully now we are in enhancement mode so scaling isn't an issue.
