Server latency

Posted 10-27-2011 at 08:26 AM by sag47

I wanted a quick and dirty way to determine server latency on my Kubuntu machine. This just parses simple output from ping and provides only the time values.

Code:
for x in drexel.edu google.com;do echo -n "[$x]: "; ping -c 1 $x | head -n 2 | tail -n 1 | awk '{split($8,arr,"=")} END{print arr[2],$9}';done
Output
Code:
[drexel.edu]: 0.576 ms
[google.com]: 6.23 ms
You can put as many servers or IPs as you want in the for loop to get a comparison. Just simple little interesting statistic.
