I have a software that ping's a device (biometric device with IP address) continuously.

What would be the effect in the network if I do continues ping?

Below is the code?
Private Sub MonitorDeviceConnectivity(ByVal State As Object)
            Dim pingDevice As New System.Net.NetworkInformation.Ping
            Do While True
                Dim Reply As System.Net.NetworkInformation.PingReply = pingDevice.Send(_IPAddress)
                If Not Reply.Status = Net.NetworkInformation.IPStatus.Success Then
                    RaiseEvent EventNetworkDeviceStatus(_IPAddress, _TerminalName, _TerminalCode, False)
                    RaiseEvent EventNetworkDeviceStatus(_IPAddress, _TerminalName, _TerminalCode, True)
                End If
        End Sub
