versatile multi ping

I needed a function to ping many computers, and get the results of the pings in an array so to manage it easily in a script.
Searching in the forum I found some interesting sw with a nice graphical interface, but not a generic function that simply return an array.
a very powerful pinger I found is >nPing by Manadar,  but it is designed as a command line tool, so I decided to use the entire engine  of nPing adapting it a bit, so that it can be used as an udf.
This code is a first attempt (beta) and it can be used to:

Ping all computers (IP addresses) belonging to the (local) LAN
just call the _nPing() without any parameter

Ping a predefined list of IP
just pass the list of host (IP or hastnames) to the function in an 1D zero based array or in a 2D array indicating the column containing the addresses

Ping all computers (IP addresses) of a remote LAN
just pass an IP of that lan and his subnet mask

Ping range of computers (IP addresses)
just pass a string rappresenting the range of IP to ping (as accepted by the nPing program by Manadar),
for example:
192.168.0.0-1        will ping these addresses: 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.0.1
192.168.20.*           will ping everything in the range from 192.168.20.1 to 192.168.20.255
192.168.0-1.1-254    will ping everything in the range from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.254

; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name...........: _nPing
; Description ...: returns an array containing: clients responding to ping or clients not responding or both. See $ReturnFlag
; Syntax.........: _nPing([[$IP]|[$IPArray]|[$IPrange]],[[$NetMask]|[$column]], [$ReturnFlag], [$Resolve], [$MyFunction])
; Parameters ....: [[$IP]|[$IPArray]|[$IPrange]] - An IP address or an 1D or 2D array (0 based) or an IPrange(*)
;                  $NetMask  - An 4 digit Net Mask or a CIDR notation value (numbers of bit from 1 to 32)
;                              if previous parameter is an 2D array then this parameter contains the
;                              nr. of the column in the passed array that contains the addresses to be pinged
;                  $ReturnFlag - 0|1|2, what to return: 0=all cliensts; 1=responding clients; 2= not responding clients(**)
;                  $Resolve - O or 1, if IP lookup name resolution must be performed; 1 = yes, 0 = no
;                  $MyFunction - an User Defined Function to be called each time a PING complete (default is progress bar)

;                                the called function receives 1 parameter that is an array containing the following 6 parameters:

;                                [0] nr. of total addresses under process
;                                [1] nr. of ping already finished
;                                [2] IP just processed
;                                [3] resolved Host name or -1 if IP is down
;                                [4] roundtrip of this ping or -1 if IP is down
;                                [5] Index of this IP within the caller's passed array
;                                by default is called the _Progress() function that will display the progress bar
; Return values .: Success - an 2D array containing:
;                  first row ($array[0][x]) contains: [0][0]= nr. of returned host; [0][1]= total roundtrip
;                  other rows: [n][0]=Address; [n][1]=lookup name; [n][2]=roundtrip; [n][3]=index in the passed array***
;                  Failure - -1, sets @error
;                  |1 - too many IP, max 16777216 ($MAX_HOSTS)
;                  |2 - wrong array dimensions or wrong column number
;                  |3 - wrong IP
;                  |4 - wrong subnet mask
;                  |5 - bad "range" or wrong IP error
;                  |6 - Windows Sockets Error
;                  |7 - (not used)
;                  |8 - DLL call error (reading local subnet mask)
;
;             (*)  IPrange is a string as below
;                  "192.168.0.0-1"        will ping these addresses: 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.0.1
;                  "192.168.20.*"       will ping everything in the range from 192.168.20.1 to 192.168.20.255
;                  "192.168.0-1.1-254"    will ping everything in the range from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.254
;
;             (**) returnead 2D array has the following 4 columns:
;                  first row contains: [0][0]= nr. of returned host; [0][1]= total roundtrip
;                  following rows contains fields as below
;                  +-------------------------+-------------------------+
;                  | nr of elements in array | total roundtrip         |
;                  +-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+
;                  | IP address              | [hostname] ( -1 )       | roundtrip (or -1)       | index ***               |
;                  +-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+
;
;            (***) since the returned array has not the same nr. of rows and also has not the same order of the array in input,
;                  this index is a reference to "bind" both arrays.
;                  It is more useful if the input array is a 2D array and you have to bind the rows containing results
;                  with related fields (array elements) in the "source" array

I have not done extensive testing on it, so I would be grateful if someone that tries it, can report any error
thanks

EDIT:

After some testing, I have seen that sometime some IP are reported as dead, while are alive instead.
This occurs when a device is not so fast to answer to the ping, and so it's marked as dead while instead is only too slow to answer to the ping.

 I  came to the conclusion that for a more accurate result about the not responding devices, is better to use a $timeout parameter of 4000 ms as default value in the _MSPing() function (the same default timeout value as in the standard ping command)

So I have "calibrated" the multiping.au3 by modifying the line 349 and incrementing the value of the $Timeout variable from 100 ms to 4000 ms.
This should be a better choice  for a general purpose utilization that gives more stable and accurate results about the not responding devices.

This should not slow down the overall performances, but will only give some more time  to respond to the slower devices.

You are welcome :)

Here another (funny) and simple example of use (it monitor clients and set a "Green box" if is responding and a Red box if goes offline)

you can appreciate the "graphic" usefullness of this example script if you have at least 5 or so (better if more) clients connected to your LAN.

edit:

changed

$MyArray = _nPing($IP_range, $IP_mask, 1, 1) ;  first call is to generate the array

with

$MyArray = _nPing($IP_range, $IP_mask, 1) ;  first call is to generate the array

to disable name resolution (not needed in this example and performs faster initial scan)

Hi,  I am trying to sort of combine the two posted scripts from above, but I am not having success.

I was wanting to create a text file list of IP's that this script would read from, ping hte devices and display the results in colored squares.  I was hoping to have the left colum of the text file, which is the name associated with the IP to display under the colored box and not the IP address.

I thought I could stumble through it, but I am quickly seeing I don't have enough experience with this stuff.  Anybody have a chance to help me?

Thanks - Mike

Hi jsa272

if you already have a file with a list of IP then the code is simpler cause there is no need to generate them automatically by the function,

we just load the IP list from the file and then continuosly perform pings on all IP addresses.

try this:

Chimp,

Thanks for the response back - thanks for also adding the remarks in there, that helps me understand nPing better. 

I have done some other slight modificaitons to fit my needs, but have run into something else I can't seem to accomplish.  I have added a sleep line so that it pings the devices every 15 minutes instead of continously, but now it would be nice to have a timestamp of the last time it pinged the devices in the list so one could look at the window and know that the script is still doing it's thing - otherwise you jsut see green boxes unless you happen to catch the boxes flicker yellow when it does it's round of pings.  Or if not a time stamp could like a 15 minute countdown timer display - that could work too.

Another thing I am trying to do is add a second button that if clicked would trigger the devices in the list to be ping'ed immediately. 

Func _button2()    ;Button to Refresh (ping devices) Now
   FuncName("_refresh")
EndFunc

I am not sure if FuncName is the appropriate function I should be using or if I need to be going to the While statement and not the refresh function portion of the script?

This is fun to be messing with and it's great get this as a tool!

Thanks for your help!

Mike

Hi, I like this scripts so much, but i have one comment on the ping or refresh. Lets say I have 1000 host to monitor, when I run it, it will takes around probably 5 minutes for it to went over all the list one by one as it loop the array. Is there a way that we split the job for example every 100 hosts will run in separate job:

 

Example for current is:

Job 1 = from 1 to 1000 (Lets say 10 minute)

Example ideal:

1000 host, split to every 100 host per job and run simultaneously

Job 1 = from 1 to 100

Job 2 = from 101 to 200

Job 3 = from 201 to 300

Job 4 = from 301 to 400

 

Of all the job run at the same time it will only takes 1 minute.

hi AaronOoi

The _nPing function doesn't ping addresses stepping "over all the list one by one as it loop the array", but it already pings more addresses simultaneously. Precisely it spawns 20 pings at once. (have a look to the task manager while the function is running and you will see 20 Ping process running).

So if you would run 4 instances of the _nPing() function, it would result in 80 pings running at the same time.

I think that over a certain number of simultaneous pings the overall performances could worsen instead of improve, this because of the overload on the lan card of your pc.
Anyway, if you want try such stress-tests, you have to simply increase the value of the variable $MAX_PROCESS on the first lines of the _nPing() function.
Now it's calibrated on the value of 20 simultaneous pings, but you can change this value as you like (within sensate values of course), maybe you can increase this value to 80 hoping to obtain better performances..... (?)

well, if you do some testing by increasing the $MAX_PROCESS value, I would be interested to know the obtained results.

P.S. keep a fire extinguisher on hand for any possible outbreak of fire on the network card....:P

Hey Chimp, First of thank you for directing me to your script. It is great. Is there way using the .txt to change different number inside of it

For example

like

10.20.30.1

10.20.30.1

 

10.21.31.1

But without changing the .txt file for every one

@Chimp

Sorry, I'm sorry  it didn't take the rest of it.

I wanna be able to Change the 2nd and 3rd octet of the IP address with out physically changing the changing the .txt file

So for example:

10.20.30.1

10.20.30.2

10.20.30.3

And my list is Fairly Long and used my some people that are not tech savy

But then I need to change the IP address like this

10.63.78.1

10.63.78.2

10.63.78.3

And still keep the same names with it.

I thought you might know a way of changing part of it

like

_nPing (10.("$oct{2}") . ("$oct{3}") . IP_List.txt ,  1, 0, 0, "_refresh")

And the .txt file look like this

router; 10. xxx. xxx. 1

WAP; 10. xxx. xxx. 2

Computer 1; 10. xxx. xxx. 3

 

What do you think???

@dascondor, the _nPing function allows various ways to pass ranges of IP addresses just specifing one IP address and the subnet mask of a LAN to ping all devices belonging to that LAN, or by using a syntax to declare ranges of IP as explained in the headerof the function (example 192.161.0-1.*), but if you want pass a list of "random" IP addresses then you have to load "manually" the addresses into a file and then pass the ready made file to the function that will be happy to ping all those addresses for you :)

note that this is just a simple example of use, If hostnames are a bit long, then "aesthetical" issues can arise in the ListView

removed the $LVS_NOLABELWRAP style from ListView for a better display of the hostnames

So I wonder does thing have any data you can save out to; does it create date that could be saved to an outside file? If not that is okay.I'm simply trying to make it more functional. (I just don't understand how the gui understand ListView.)

The _nPing function() performs the Ping on all the clients contained in the passed array and collects all results in the returned array

so, when you call the nPing function, it takes a certain amount of time to terminate, depending on the number of elements in the array and the roundtrip of each single device, and at the end of all the pings, it returns to you an array loaded with all the results.

Furthermore, there is a bonus extra, that is, during the time used by the function to complete the job, instead of just waiting the result, you can use in the meanwhile, the "CallBack" function so to be notified each time a single ping terminate it's job

In this way you can "see" on live what's going on also before to receive the final result in the array. I used this CallBack feature to update the ListView, live.

In the above demo,
1) I don't make use of the returned array, since, as you can see in the listing, I just call the nPing function without a variable to get the returned array.
2) I use only the callBack function "_refresh" just to update the ListView.
3) I repeat points 1 and 2 in an endless loop just to continuously show, using the colored squares in the ListView, the status of the pinged devices.

Now, if you want instead for example make just one scan and then save all the results to a file on the disk, you can simply call the nPing function just one time, and then write the data you need from the returned array to the disk file.
(To semplify further, you could also remove all the ListView stuff from the gui and also remove the "_refresh" call back function from the nPing. In this way, when no call back function is specified, by default is shown a progress bar. Anyway I leave also the listview just to show how to make use of both functionalities)

Here is a reduced listing to show how to:

That makes so much more sense now.

What would I need to add to add device names to it?

Thank you very much for your Time and Expertise.

Set the fourth parameter of the nPing function to 1, so the IP address is also resolved in the host name

$aFinalResult = _nPing($IPlist, 1, 0, 1, "_refresh")

You will find the host name in the second column of the returned array.

the returned array has the following columns (1 based):

+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+
| IP address              | [hostname]              | roundtrip (or -1)       | index                   |
+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+-------------------------+

If instead you want to get the device names from your original file then what you need is the value in the fourth column of the returned array. This number tells you the line number of the original array that this ping result is referring to.
so, to get the device name from the original file just do like this:

$sHost = $IPlist[$aFinalResult[$i][3]][0]

P.S.

Heve a look to the function headr, all this, and other infos, are all explained in the function header.

      Hi guys,
      It's been a while since I wrote my last message here and a while since I used AutoIt. I'm currently sort of desperate and I'm trying to find some help in regards of getting the network usage per process!
      I'm not interested in the total network usage of the NIC, but only on a specific PID's network utilization. They idea is to collect the amount of traffic uploaded and downloaded by a list of specific processes. So far Process Hacker and Process Explorer are capable of getting what I need, but I need to use these numbers in another script so they're sort of useless to me. I can't seem to find a way around it.
      Any idea, help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      Hello everyone !
      While writing a sample of code to test ping to my internet box, I got stuck..
      While the code is Pinging with let say.. 5000ms of timeout, I need to update a progress bar from 0 to 5000 ms at the same time but I don't know how could I do this..
      Is there a way or something that could get around the pause of the ping like in InetGet -> InetGetInfo?

      Hello,
      In Windows 10 PowerShell, one can do this to change the metric for a NIC in Windows 10:
      Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.InterfaceAlias -Eq "Ethernet 2"} | Set-NetIPInterface -InterfaceMetric 2 I know I can script the above PowerShell line (and it works!), but I wanted to try something I hadn't done before after looking into jguinch's most excellent Network configuration UDF. I wanted to make use of the SetIPConnectionMetric method in the WMI classes. There is an example VBscript here but this is not for Windows 10. Using AutoIT would also give better control over capturing error return codes than with PowerShell.
      But I cannot get my script to work! The return from SetIPConnectionMetric() is 0, which would indicate success. Yet the change does not happen. I also tried WMI methods using .put_ but this fails.
      Anyone more experienced than I have ideas to make this work?
      #RequireAdmin _SetNicInterfaceMetric2("Ethernet 2", "2") Func _SetNicInterfaceMetric2($NIC_NAME, $METRIC) Local $s_setIndx = 0 $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel = impersonate}!\\" & "." & "\root\cimv2") $colNICItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapter WHERE NetConnectionID = '" & $NIC_NAME & "'", "WQL") If IsObj($colNICItems) Then For $objItem In $colNICItems $s_nicIndex = $objItem.Index Next ConsoleWrite("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE Index = '" & $s_nicIndex & "'" & @CRLF) $colNAC = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE Index = '" & $s_nicIndex & "'", "WQL") If IsObj($colNAC) Then For $objNetCard In $colNAC If $METRIC <> $objNetCard.IPConnectionMetric Then ConsoleWrite("Metric was set to " & $objNetCard.IPConnectionMetric & ". Setting to " & $METRIC & "." & @CRLF) $s_isSet = $objNetCard.SetIPConnectionMetric($METRIC) ConsoleWrite("SetIPConnectionMetric Result = " & $s_isSet & @CRLF) Else ConsoleWrite("Metric is already set to " & $METRIC & @CRLF) EndIf Next EndIf EndIf EndFunc ;==>_SetNicInterfaceMetric2

      Hi
      I am trying to send a file over TCP from a TCP client to server. If I run the server and client on the same computer the file is send fine, but if the server is on one computer on the network and the client on another the file is sent in what looks like more than one packet. In other words the server receives 4 msg from the client.
      Why is this, how do I make it send in one go, or what is a way around it?
      Side Note: TCP server has a max of 999999999
