Hi , I am looking for an ICMP utility to do a continuous ping with a payload size of 1000 bytes. I will need to record the data in a readable fashion. Unfortuanetly the native dos command ping isn't good enough or what we need, any suggestions?

ping -t -l 1000 >> ping.log

If that doesn't do it, you need to elaborate.
