Fping is a ping 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.
