  • I need to collect dummy packets data. It is better to increase its rate. Apr 10 '14 at 12:47
$ man ping


   -i interval
          Wait interval seconds between sending each packet.  The
          default is to wait for one second between each packet
          normally, or not to wait in flood mode. Only super-user
          may set interval to values less 0.2 seconds.
