Solaris Package Archive
What is it
fping 2.2b1 is a ping(1) like program which uses the Internet Control
Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a host is up.
fping is different from ping in that you can specify any number of hosts
on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of hosts to
ping. Instead of trying one host until it timeouts or replies, fping will
send out a ping packet and move on to the next host in a round-robin
fashion. If a host replies, it is noted and removed from the list of hosts
to check. If a host does not respond within a certain time limit and/or
retry limit it will be considered unreachable.
fping is useful to anyone needing to monitor a large network.
