An asynchronous, event-driven, pure-python ping implementation using raw sockets based on gevent. This is a fork of the python-ping project replacing its internal machinery with gevent. The point is to have an event driven ping utility for doing a huge number of concurrent pings efficiently.
Run on the commandline
# Ping some hostnames gping --hostnames=gnu.org,fsf.org,google.com,microsoft.com,googleusercontent.com,live.com,stackoverflow.com,184.108.40.206,220.127.116.11,192.168.123.1,192.168.999.1
Demo with 100 concurrent pings
# Ping the top 100 domains time python gping.py
Use as library
from gping import GPing gp = GPing() gp.send("127.0.0.1", test_callback) gp.join()
From Python Package Index
This should be easy on your average *nix box, just type:
sudo pip install gping
This way of installing gping is suitable for hacking on it:
git clone https://github.com/mastahyeti/gping.git cd gping virtualenv .venv27 source .venv27/bin/activate python setup.py develop
License and Credits
The python-ping project was started by Matthew Dixon Cowles.

It was forked and ported to
gevent by Ben Toews. Since then, this program is now called appropriately GPing.
I have left the license and authors information intact, but this project seems to have a long history or forks and such so I am probably somehow pissing someone off or violating some license. Let me know if this is the case and I will be better.
