Quickly ping multiple hosts without flooding the network
Maintained by: jharris@widomaker.com search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: unknown
Also Listed In: ipv6
License: PreviousBSD


A tool to quickly ping N number of hosts to determine their reachability
without flooding the network.

     fping is different from ping in that you can specify any number of
	 hosts on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists
	 of hosts to ping. Instead of trying one host until it timeouts or
	 replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next
	 host in a round-robin fashion. If a host replies, it is noted and
	 removed from the list of hosts to check. If a host does not respond
	 within a certain time limit and/or retry limit it will be considered
	 unreachable. 

     Unlike ping, fping is meant to be used in scripts and its
     output is easy to parse.

According to the Porter's Handbook (5.12.2.3.) default options must be added to
OPTIONS_DEFINE. This policy has been implemented only recently that's why we
have many ports violating this policy.

This patch adds the default options specified in the Porter's Handbook to
OPTIONS_DEFINE where they are being used. Ports maintained by
gnome@FreeBSD.org, kde@FreeBSD.org and x11@FreeBSD.org have been excluded.

ports/net/fping patch to add -S source_addr option

        Several people have produced some patches for fping that adds an
        option to select the IP source_address for queries and some have
        said they submitted them to the sourceforge fping maintainer.
        Since I did not see any official fping distributions that include
        any of those patches, I recently Cc-ed the sourceforge fping
        maintainer's address in a question to the smokeping mailing-list
        asking about that patch but so far I have heard back only from
        that list with a pointer to a debian patch. Per request from
        Jason Harris, I include here a copy of the patch that is usable
        in ports/net/fping/files that adds that option.
