ServerReachable? is a simple application which checks whether the servers in a list are reachable or not. Reachable servers are marked as green rows, not reachable ones as red rows. Servers can be added in the list and the cycle time for the checks can be configured individually. The server address can be an ip address or a server name (e.g. 188.8.131.52 or 'www.google.com'). In this case a ICMP ECHO request is used to check if the server is reachable via the network. If this check fails a regular 'ping' is issued and the result evaluated. Additionally, webpages can be checked (e.g. 'http://www.droid-fad.com'). ServerReachable? checks if the http site can be loaded.
Every entry in the list shows when the status of the server changed the last time and how many failed request where sent to the server. The count can be reset.
