Ping / Packet Internet Gropper

PING stands for Packet Internet Gropper — a basic computer network administration software utility that uses ICMP to send out echo requests, and then uses the reply packets to calculate latency between the sending and the destination hosts.
Ping is most commonly used to verify that a particular IP address exists and can accept requests.
