Pings multiple hosts at once
'fping' is a ping-like program which uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a target host is responding. 'fping' differs from ping in that you can specify any number of targets on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of targets to ping. Instead of sending pings to one target until it times out or replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next target in a round-robin fashion.
