Contrary to many other “pingers” HostMonitor knows when a host is not supposed to be reachable, and also monitors the network connection of the Android telephone itself. This way false alarms are avoided and you can monitor a different set of hosts depending of what network or VPN you and your Android device are connected to. At work you monitor your internal work machines, home you monitor your Internet connection and so forth. The last known state of your hosts are remembered and when you reconnect to a new network, monitoring is resumed with the new set of machines. Test methods are fully configurable using tcp or udp probe packets (icmp not supported as it requires root privileges).
