Using of the Linux Command Ping (With Examples).
Unfortunately, when a host is offline, the ping takes a long time to timeout. I checked man ping, there seem to be two options to set the timeout delay: -w deadline and -W timeout. I think I'm interested in the latter. So I tried this: ping -c 1 -W 1 10.0.0.1 But waiting one second per offline host is still too long. I tried to set it to below a second, but it does not seem to take the.
