Ping is a simple uptime monitor that uses your Mac's internet connection. Keep track of the status & speed of websites, APIs, servers, routers or any endpoint and get feedback directly in your menu bar and local notifications.

  • Heads-up-display of the status of all your sites right in the menu bar.
  • Get local notifications when a url is erroring or unreachable.
  • HTTP & ICMP pinging.
  • IPv6 support.
  • Measure and configure response times to see if a url is performing slowly.
  • Control how often you want to ping your urls.
  • Customize the information you want to display.
  • Secure & private: no tracking or analytics.
  • Fully native app with performance & battery life in mind.
  • Built-in response logging or stream responses to terminal.
  • Configure webhooks to ping another service when an endpoint is down to send yourself an email, sms, etc.
  • AppleScript support for building your own custom workflows.

Instead of paying a monthly fee for an external notification service, get notified directly for free while you are actively working at your computer. Ideal for webmasters, dev ops, gamers, network administrators, or anyone!

Free, limited version available via the App Store with Ping Pro in-app purchase upgrade. Or you can buy Ping Pro directly here.

Requires macOS 11.0 or later.
