I want to run constant pings to a few specific hosts on my network - does anyone know how I can timestamp and log these pings to a file so I can possibly correlate dropped packets with certain network occurances?  Network is Cisco and Windows 2000 based.

to constantly ping use this command:

ping -t 123.456.789.098

where 123.456.789.098 is IP address of the host you want to ping

ok, you can use this command to add timestamps to the ping results

ping -s 1 -t 123.456.789.098

where 123.456.789.098 is the IP of th host.

you may want to use a protocol analyzer instead.  It will allow you monitor bandwidth durring certain occurances, and will give you tons more.
