iputils-arping: Tool to send ICMP echo requests to an ARP address

 The arping command acts like the standard ping command except it pings
 a machine by its ARP address instead of its IP address. It is typically
 used to locate a machine if its hardware address is known but its IP
 address is unknown

iputils-clockdiff: Measure the time difference between networked computers

 Clockdiff computes the difference between the time of the machine on
 which it is called and the time of other network-accessible machines.
 The time differences measured by clockdiff are obtained using a
 sequence of ICMP TSTAMP messages which are returned to the sender by
 the IP module in the remote machine.

iputils-ping: Tools to test the reachability of network hosts

 The ping command sends ICMP ECHO_REQUEST packets to a host in order to
 test if the host is reachable via the network.
 This package includes a ping6 utility which supports IPv6 network

iputils-ping-dbgsym: debug symbols for iputils-ping
iputils-tracepath: Tools to trace the network path to a remote host

 The tracepath utility is similar to the traceroute utility, but also
 attempts to discover the MTU of the path. Supports IPv4 and IPv6.
