-A '​ping'​ is a basic network test that will send messages across a network to a computer and measure the time lapsed from sending to receiving the messages. ​ It will record any packet loss and average trip times. ​ The ping test is testing UDP protocol of the TCP/IP stack. ​ UDP compared to TCP does not re-transmit ​aso when a package is lost or dropped, this can tell us something. ​ A very small percentage of packet loss may not be something to worry about. ​ Large amounts of packet loss could be a symptom of a hardware or network configuration issue.+A '​ping'​ is a basic network test that will send messages across a network to a computer and measure the time lapsed from sending to receiving the messages. ​ It will record any packet loss and average trip times. ​ The ping test is testing UDP protocol of the TCP/IP stack. ​ UDP compared to TCP does not re-transmit ​as when a package is lost or dropped, this can tell us something. ​ A very small percentage of packet loss may not be something to worry about. ​ Large amounts of packet loss could be a symptom of a hardware or network configuration issue.
