I'm pretty sure Windows 2000 has a 'cron'-type of facility (scheduled task, or whatever it is called), to have the OS call your script periodically. With a little modification you could have your script do the probing and terminate within 60 seconds, and have the OS startup an new script every 60 seconds.

From your last description it sounds like you run your stuff from a terminal window. It should also be possible to run it as a service/in the background so it is not dependant on somebody/something terminating your terminal window. This doesn't exclude something/somebody terminating your script itself ofcourse.

Also, for network performance/failure type of measurements there are some excellent pieces of software available (written in perl):

  • SmokePing
  • Nagios

      Title:
      Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
      and:  <code> code here </code>
      to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



      • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
      • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
        <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
      • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
      • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
