http-ping is a small, free, easy-to-use Windows command line utility that probes a given URL and displays relevant statistics. It is similar to the popular ping utility, but works over HTTP/S instead of ICMP, and with a URL instead of a computer name/IP address. http-ping supports IPv6 addresses.

For each request, http-ping displays:

  • The HTTP return code (and its brief textual description)

  • The number of bytes returned by the server (excluding headers)-

  • The time taken to complete the request (i.e. round-trip time)-

How can I use "Nmap" utility as like "http-ping" ?
