Description Sindre Pedersen Bjørdal 2007-05-04 16:33:32 EDT
Spec URL: http://folk.ntnu.no/sindrb/packages/green_nyc/fping.spec
SRPM URL: http://folk.ntnu.no/sindrb/packages/green_nyc/fping-2.4b2_to-1.fc7.src.rpm

Description:
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.
