http ping

http-ping probes a given URL and displays relevant statistics.

http-ping is a small, free, easy-to-use command-line utility that probes a given URL and displays relevant statistics. It is similar to the popular 'ping' utility, but works over HTTP/S instead of ICMP, and with a URL instead of a computer name/IP address. http-ping is compatible with IPv4 and IPv6. Use http-ping to discover if a web site is responding to requests, test the performance of any web site, or load-test a web server. http-ping's simplicity makes it the ideal choice for use in scripts that must detect if a web server is available and serving pages.

Changes: Fixed a bug where the timeout parameter was not properly handled, which resulted in http-ping waiting too long before declaring failure.

Minimum requirements: Pentium-class processor; 1 MB free disk space

Operating system: Windows 10, Windows 11, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022
