Summary: A program to ping multiple hosts
FPing is a ping-like program that 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 a list of
targets to ping. Instead of sending pings to one target until it times
out or replies, FPing sends a ping packet and moves on to the next
target in a round-robin fashion.

In the default mode, if a target replies, it is noted and removed from
the list of targets to check. If a target does not respond within a
certain time limit or retry limit, it is designated as unreachable.
FPing also supports sending a specified number of pings to a target or
looping indefinitely (as in ping).

Unlike ping, FPing is meant to be used in scripts. Its output is
designed to be easy to parse.

  - no longer invoke permissions macros for fping. It now uses ICMP_RAW sockets
    instead (bsc#1174504).
* Mon Aug 17 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 5.0:
    - In non-quiet loop and count mode, a line is printed for every lost packet : xmt/rcv/%loss = 2/2/0%, min/avg/max = 12.3/12.5/12.8 : xmt/rcv/%loss = 2/0/100%
    - The returned size in bytes now always excludes the IP header, so if before it
      reported '84 bytes' e.g. when using 'fping -l', now it reports '64 bytes'.
      This is to make the reported size consistent with ping(8) from iputils and
      also with fping when pinging a IPv6 host (which never included the IPv6
      header size).
    - The number of sent pings is only counted when the pings are received or have
      timed out, ensuring that the loss ratio will be always correct. This makes it
      possible, for example, to use loop mode (-l) with interval statistics (-Q)
      and a timeout larger than period, without having the issue that initially
      some pings would be reported as missing (#193)
    - Improved precision of measurements from 10us to 1us (#136, thanks @tycho)
    - The reported size of received packets is now always correct on Linux even for
      packets > 4096 bytes.
