Hi All,

This is christhu,I have a C# Multithreading question.

I have list of 100 devices in an array. I ping each device, it takes considerable time to get the status of 100 devices one by one. The code is here:

for (int i = 0; i<= arr.Length; i++)
   row = table.NewRow();
   remoteIP = arr[i].Trim().ToString();
   if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(remoteIP))
      PingReply reply = null;
          reply = new Ping().Send(remoteIP, 1000);
          row["Description"] = "Ping Failed";

I need to implement this using Multithreading as I heard that when we use Multithreading we can reduce the processing time.

Please Help Me

The Ping class has a SendAsync method.

That would be much, much better than creating threads.

if you are into CTP's then i can full heartedly recommend the Async library
download form[^]

and read a great article from our own Sacha Barber :)
Task Parallel Library : 1 of n[^]

that way you get to spend some time not only getting your task done, but learning something cool :)

of course the SendAsync mentioned above is a great way to just get it done. :)
