Nmap ping flooding and network sniffing?

I am looking for quick sources on specific nmap usage; network sniffing, and ping flooding. Do any of you guys have examples or good links that give me what I am looking for?

Nmap is not exactly for classic 'sniffing', it is a network scanner.
Wireshark can be used for sniffing network traffic.
Ping flooding can be done by the stock or custom ping applications under most operating systems.

(Please note: sniffing and ping flooding outside your own learning lab can get you into serious trouble. But I assume you have decent goals, like learning.)

Likewise do have good intent on use of such tool in lab as kickstart. I suggest you take a look at security onion.

Nmap itself ( or zenmap) below may help but it is not for sniffing, security onion has tcpdump and networkminer

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
