fping is a program like ping 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.
# > fping -a host1 host2 host3 host1 is alive host3 is alive host3 is unreachable (-a shows targets that are alive)
