    Target IP address and ping interval should be customizable.

    Anyone fancy taking up the challenge? :)

    I have a way to do this. Using the PerfCounter.dll plugin, we can access Windows Performance Counters. I can create custom counters and fill them with the results of ping tests using PowerShell.

    This could be quite powerful because really we can take anything from a shell script and monitor it.

    I'm a powershell rookie (this is literally the first time I've used it) and some of this has to be done as admin, so I'm just tidying up the code before I release it. Perhaps someone who has some powershell skill could fix it up afterwards?

    I guess I'll talk to MSI to organize plugin development contest after releasing official 4.4.0. To motivate creating more useful things like that and to let creative developers to get some nice prizes.

    Anyone interested in Beta testing PM me.
    Administrative privileges required on first launch to be able to "Add Counter" to Perfmon
    Manual edit of config file MSI Afterburner\Plugins\Monitoring\PerfCounter.cfg is needed.

    so the plan is to enter your game server there and have a graph that shows latency?

    You could do if you wished, I like to just have my general internet connection quality visible my pinging my ISP's closest server constantly. That way if im gaming I can tell immediately if I get a latency issue if it is my connection or usage on my end (downloads etc) that is causing the problem or something else on the game server end (that is out of my control).

    Yes, if you know IP of the server you are playing on, and server is accepting ICMP traffic you can enter it in this app and get a in game latency graph.
