UDP Prober

UDP Prober is a simple program that takes a list of hosts also running UDP Prober and pings the entire list periodically (and also listens for probes), recording the latencies measured. This was an exercise in being “C++-ish,” which meant using boost libraries rather than C platform libraries—in particular, it was an excuse for me to play with boost::asio. I tried to keep things simple, but the end result is rather more complicated and verbose than I had anticipated. boost::asio seems to have some difficulty scaling down to simpler applications. It’s probably fine as a portable, very-low-level C++ interface to sockets and as a framework for asynchronous programming. Anyway, here.




UDP Prober is released under the GNU GPL3.
