linux default iconliboping Publisher's description

liboping is a C library to generate ICMP echo requests, better known as “ping packets”.

liboping is a C library to generate ICMP echo requests, better known as “ping packets”. It is intended for use in network monitoring applications or applications that would otherwise need to fork ping(1) frequently. Included is a sample application, called oping, which demonstrates the library's abilities. It is like ping, ping6, and fping rolled into one. Since people are curious you might want to see an example output.

Starting with version 1.4.0, a second example application, noping, provides an ncurses-based front-end to liboping. Using curses windows it is able to display the ping statistics online (i.e. “live”). An aberrant behavior detection highlights all round-trip times that are unusually high or low.

liboping was inspired by ping, libping (homepage vanished) and fping: It differs from these existing solutions in that it can ”ping” multiple hosts in parallel using IPv4 or IPv6 transparently. Other design principles were an object oriented interface, simplicity and extensibility: Is simple because there are only a few interface functions and no external dependencies. It's extensible since all (internal) data is kept in “opaque data types”, so the storage may change or be extended without applications noticing it.

What's New in This Release:

В· An alias for the Voice Admit PHB has been added to the Quality of Service option.
В· Compiler warnings / errors have been fixed, thanks to James Bromberger for pointing one of them out.
· The documentation of the “-f” option of oping has been corrected.
