Connection establishment connection

The new Availability Condition parameter, available in Preferences, allows you to define the number of passed pings in a row that could be interpreted as established connection to a remote host. By default that parameter is set to one ping, so the end of outage will be detected once the first ping is passed, but you can change this parameter if you need during the initial configuration of the program or later in the Preferences dialog.

Customizable headers and footers in reports

In the Professional edition of the program, you can customize the report headers and footers to display custom text and a company logo. You can use the available customization options in the Preferences > Reports Customization dialog.
