linkchk is a network link ping monitor. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6. It works by repeatedly pinging a named host or the default gateway of a given interface. When the link is working the ping time is shown in a small GTK window or tty, otherwise the link status is shown. It is particularly useful for monitoring IP tunnels or dialup links.
