Some of the nPing functionally is built into the Notes Client, but not much.

In February 2008, I wrote all about a Lotus Notes diagnostics utility called nPing.  It’s no more.  Go to the web link I provided then and you’ll see this message:

Thanks for almost nothing IBM.

You can find SOME of the nPing functionally in the Lotus Notes 8.5.x client, but not much.  Under the Files / Preferences / Notes Port menu option, there is a “Trace” button.

This is what it returns:
Lotus Notes Trace results

Or to dump it out in raw text:
