When you need to know if a remote machine is accessible and responding adequately to network accesses, you can use the ICMP protocol to send request to a remote host and see how it responds.

The ping program exists in many Operating Systems and can be used to send ICMP requests to check a remote server. However, in some cases, PHP applications cannot use the ping program due to PHP setup constraints.

This class provides an alternative solution for emulating the ping program by sending ICMP protocol requests using pure PHP code.
