I was looking into pinging a host 5 times per second. I've read the man page for 'ping' for Mac OSX, but I can't find anything that would allow me to do this. I tried setting the -W switch to 5, to try and force sending more packets faster than the reply is received, but no luck there.
-W waittime Time in milliseconds to wait for a reply for each packet sent.
I ended up using liboping from homebrew.
Is there a reason why I can't control the time gap between ping attempts with the default ping utility?
