The Eclipse SCADA ICMP Check tool is a small command line application which performs a periodical ICMP Echo/Echo Reply check including calculating a round-trip-time.
This tool is not a Java application but a compiled C/C++ application which requires root permissions (SUID bit). Therefore the build process is a bit different than all the other packages. Also is this application specific to Unix-oid/Linux operation systems.
The easiest way to obtain a pre-compiled package is download it from Ubuntu's launchpad from the Eclipse SCADA PPA.
Add the PPA using the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eclipsescada/ppa sudo apt-get update
Afterwards you can install the package using:
sudo apt-get install eclipse-scada-ping
You can also navigate to https://launchpad.net/~eclipsescada/+archive/ppa/+packages and download the packages manually.
You can also get the source code from git and build it yourself:
git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/eclipsescada/org.eclipse.scada.base.git cd org.eclipse.scada.base.check.icmp ./autogen.sh ./configure make sudo make install
The result will be "eclipse_scada_ping" installed to "/usr/local/bin".
