Multiple Host Ping Library that supports ICMPv4 and ICMPv6
This package is based on the package 'liboping' from project 'server:monitoring'.
liboping is a C library for measuring network latency using ICMP echo requests. It can send to and receive packets from multiple hosts in parallel, which is nice for monitoring applications. Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported transparently for the programmer and user.
A program called oping is available on the oping package to show the simplicity and potential of the library and provide the functionality at the command line.
