Effective Use of Ping Utility

Ping is a network utility to check the connectivity between two nodes in a computer network. Ping sends ICMP packets to the destination device and if the packets reach the destination successfully, the source device will receive ICMP replies. If the ICMP packets failed to reach the destination, we will get ping packet loss reply. ICMP is the short form of Internet Control Message Protocol.
