Can anyone recommend a equivalent software for ping tester?

The screenshot is quite hard to read. What features are you looking for specifically, which are not available in the command-line tools ping and hping? – Nicolas Raoul May 31 '11 at 8:03
First of all i need the time stamp for all ping reports. And then i want to scan a group of ip list which produces a single output. – karthick87 May 31 '11 at 8:17
I wonder if nmap (with the right options) is what you're after? Take a look here. Ctrl+F for 'timestamps' to see if it's suitable. – boehj May 31 '11 at 9:41
Have you tried man ping – Nitin Venkatesh May 31 '11 at 23:59

Yes, there's the Network Tools:

On Unity, open the Dash and type "Network Tools", in Gnome it's in System → Administration → Network Tools.

It has no timestamps as requested on comments. – Javier Rivera May 31 '11 at 9:16
Hi @stefano it would be better if i get the time stamp like you see in my screenshot. – karthick87 Jun 5 '11 at 5:52
Sorry, I don't know of a graphical app that can do that. If it helps at all, the terminal command that does what you want would be ping | while read i; do echo $(date): $i; done – Stefano Palazzo Jun 5 '11 at 6:05
