    sbin/ping            ping.8 ping.c 
    Implement a new feature for ping(8) - sweeping pings. In a sweeping
    ping ICMP payload of packets being sent is increased with given step.
    Sweeping pings are useful for testing problematic channels, MTU
    issues or traffic policing functions in networks.
