Page content

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.

apt-get install httping

On running the command you get the following output

[email protected]:~\$ httping -g http://google.com -
