DESCRIPTION

node-ping is a simple wrapper for the system ping utility

INSTALLATION

npm install ping

USAGE

Tradition calls

var ping = require('ping');

var hosts = ['192.168.1.1', 'google.com', 'yahoo.com'];
hosts.forEach(function(host){
    ping.sys.probe(host, function(isAlive){
        var msg = isAlive ? 'host ' + host + ' is alive' : 'host ' + host + ' is dead';
        console.log(msg);
    });
});

Promise wrapper

var ping = require('ping');

var hosts = ['192.168.1.1', 'google.com', 'yahoo.com'];

hosts.forEach(function (host) {
    ping.promise.probe(host)
        .then(function (res) {
            console.log(res);
        });
});

Promise Wrapper with configable ping options

//Only promise wrapper supports configable ping options
hosts.forEach(function (host) {
    ping.promise.probe(host, {
        timeout: 10,
        extra: ["-i 2"]
    }).then(function (res) {
            console.log(res);
        });
});
