aio_ping 0.1.3

An async python ICMP ping implementation using raw sockets.

aio_ping

An asyncio-based python ping implementation using raw sockets.

  • Compatible with Python 3.5 ff.
  • Note that ICMP messages can only be sent from processes running as root (in Windows, you must run this script as ‘Administrator’).

Usage

usage: ping [-h] [-w TIMEOUT] [-c COUNT] [-i INTERVAL] [-4] [-6]
            [-I SOURCEINTF] [-s NUMDATABYTES] [-T] [-S SOURCEIP]
            hostname

A pure python implementation of the ping protocol. *REQUIRES ROOT*

positional arguments:
  hostname              The address to attempt to ping.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -w TIMEOUT, --deadline TIMEOUT
                        The maximum amount of time to wait until ping times
                        out.
  -c COUNT, --request_count COUNT
                        The number of attempts to make. Zero=infinite.
  -i INTERVAL, --interval INTERVAL
                        Time between ping attempts
  -4, --ipv4            Flag to use IPv4.
  -6, --ipv6            Flag to use IPv6.
  -I SOURCEINTF, --interface SOURCEINTF
                        Interface to use.
  -s NUMDATABYTES, --packet_size NUMDATABYTES
                        Designate the amount of data to send per packet.
  -T, --test_case       Flag to run the default test case suite.
  -S SOURCEIP, --source_address SOURCEIP
                        Source address from which ICMP Echo packets will be
                        sent.

>>> ping('google.com', timeout=3000, count=3, delay=0.5)
True
>>> ping('google.com', timeout=3000, count=3, delay=0.5, verbose=True)

Async usage is via the {Ping} class, which can be used like this:

from aio_ping import Ping,VerbosePing
async def ping(hostname, verbose=True, handle_signals=False, **kw):
    """
    Send @count ping to @hostname with the given @timeout
    """
    ping = (VerbosePing if verbose else Ping)(verbose=verbose, **kw)
    if handle_signals: ping.add_signal_handler()
    await ping.init(hostname)
    res = await ping.looped()
    if verbose:
        ping.print_stats()
    ping.close()
    return res
