What is Ping ?
Ping is a tool often used for network diagnostics, as well as for keeping connections from timing out. In its simplest terms, ping reports back how
much time it takes for a message to reach one host and then come back again. This is referred to as roundtrip time. Ping also records packet loss. Packet loss occurs when a packet is lost or rejected due to signal degradation, channel congestion or corruption. High packet loss and high round trip time result in a slower Internet speeds, which is most noticeable in gaming or multimedia streaming as choppiness, lag or dropped connections.
