gcpping is both a command line tool and a webapp that reports median latency to Google Cloud regions. The webapp is hosted at gcping.com. To install the command line tool, see below.
Note: This is not an official Google product.
gcping [options...] Options: -n Number of requests to be made to each region. By default 10; can't be negative. -c Max number of requests to be made at any time. By default 10; can't be negative or zero. -r Report latency for an individual region. -t Timeout. By default, no timeout. Examples: "500ms", "1s", "1s500ms". -top If true, only the top (non-global) region is printed. -csv CSV output; disables verbose output. -v Verbose output. Need a website version? See gcping.com
