A ping is used to ensure that a device that another user is attempting to reach is operating. Machines ping each other to determine response times and availability. Pings send an ICMP request to another machine and await a reply.
Pings can be used to determine the validity and status of a specific IP address. Pinging can help diagnose problems in networks and find routes around traffic bottlenecks.
