Fping 3.10 Description:

fping for Linux : A ping like program that makes use of the ICMP echo request to see if a host is up

fping is a completely free and open source command-line ping like program that uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a network host is up or down. While it has been designed especially for GNU/Linux operating systems, it can ping any host. fping is different from the original ping program, as users can specify any number of network hosts, as well as the ability to specify a file containing a list of hosts to ping. Unlike ping, fping is engineered to be integrated in scripts. Its output is easy to parse, and instead of trying one host until it replies or timeouts, it will send out a ping packet and move on to the next one.
