oping uses ICMP packages (better known as "ping packets") to test the
reachability of network hosts. It supports pinging multiple hosts in parallel
using IPv4 and/or IPv6 transparently.
This package contains two command line applications: "oping" is a replacement
for tools like ping(1), ping6(1) and fping(1). "noping" is an ncurses-based
tool which displays statistics while pinging and highlights aberrant
round-trip times.
