Httping

One of my work mates was trying to find the util that allows you to do “pings” to a http server. I knew about it but couldn’t remember the url thusly one has placed it on the block so i dont have to remember it httping.

1
apt-get install httping

On running the command you get the following output

[email protected]:~$ httping -g http://google.com -
Using proxyserver: nokes.nokia.com:8080  
PING google.com:80 (http://google.com):  
connected to google.com:80, seq=0 time=190.52 ms  
connected to google.com:80, seq=1 time=183.47 ms  
connected to google.com:80, seq=2 time=184.98 ms  
connected to google.com:80, seq=3 time=183.60 ms 

Usefully to figure out latency issues.
