use of ping
I would like to use the ping command to test the remote server in every hour
I tried to add a crontab job as below .
* 5-23 * * * ping 192.168.0.1
but it will add a new ping process in every hour , after hours , there are many ping process in the system , can advise if I only want to ping the remote server
( submit one ping packet will do , no need to continuely ping and do not leave ping process in the system ) , can advise what can i do ? thx
