Ping is yet another computer network utility commonly used by administrators in their day to day life. The tool is available on all operating systems. It's a tool that sends echo request packets from originating computer network to destination computer network using internet control message protocol (ICMP) inorder to check it's reachability. It can checks the reachability of the ip or host. Pinging from origination to destination and reply coming back to origination is always round-trip time. Output results can be used to identify and figure out packet loss or delay in and between networks. This utility can also be used to send different size of packets, number of counts to test, interval between requests and wait time for the response to receive. Please note some servers or network including firewalls that blocks ICMP packets due to security reasons will not respond to the request made to and from by ping.
