2ping is a bi-directional ping utility. It uses 3-way pings (akin to TCP SYN, SYN/ACK, ACK) and after-the-fact state comparison between a 2ping listener and a 2ping client to determine which direction packet loss occurs.
arping broadcasts a who-has ARP packet on the network and prints answers.
echoping is a small program to test (approximatively) performances of a remote host by sending it TCP "echo" (or other protocol) packets.
ekgping pings a host, just like ping. However, it does not output simple text, but shows the results in a graphical and audible manner, somewhat similar to an electrocardiograph.
enin is for enumerating ipx nodes on a network. It works by sending an ipx ping packet to all nodes on a network.
fping is a program to send ICMP echo probes to network hosts, similar to ping, but much better performing when pinging multiple hosts.
GTK-Pinger is a cyclic multi ping utility for selected adresses using GTK/ncurses. You simply write adresses into a configuration file and after execution of pinger, you will see small nice window, which inform you about current status of selected hosts and their triptimes.
GTPing is like ping, but uses GTP ping requests to ping GGSNs and anything else that will answer them.
httping is like 'ping' but for http-requests. Give it an url, and it'll show you how long it takes to connect, send a request and retrieve the reply (only the headers).
zPing is a multihomed internet links tester, failover and recovery bash script for network balanced setups. When called from izBalancing it automates the process of failover and recovery of connected Internet lines.
Ping Tunnel allows you to reliably tunnel TCP connections to a remote host using ICMP echo request and reply packets, commonly known as ping requests and replies.
PingNode will ping a list of network devices at a specified interval. It will then create a record in a MySQL database for each ping indicating that the node was there or not there. It will also send an email if the node is found to be down.
pingx is a utility that uses the XNoOp(3x) call to see how fast your connection to your X server.
poing is a text mode multi-host ping program that displays ongoing host statii as colorful leftward-scrolling strip charts.
RouterCli is a Cisco-like shell for diskless or one-floppy Linux mini-distributions.
The RouterCli includes interface configuration, routing manipulation, ping, telnet, trace, rip daemon, standard acls and other utilities.
Send ICMP Nasty Garbage: Security ping replacement with many features:
spoofing, fragmentation,systems emulation, etc.
SmokePing measures latency and packet loss in your network. SmokePing uses RRDtool to maintain a longterm datastore and to draw pretty graphs giving up to the minute information on the state of each network connection.
TkPing is an application written in Perl/Tk which helps you monitor hosts on a network. It is intended primarily for system administrators / network administrators who need to detect when crucial hosts and other network nodes go down.
