How To Use The Ping Command In Linux?

I use the ping command in Linux for three reasons:

First, I can check for connectivity of a computer on a local network or on the Internet.

Second, I can determine if the Domain Name Servers are working once the IP is provided with the result.

Third is to check for quality of the connection by receiving the data loss percentage.

If the loss is Zero, then there is no loss of data during transmitting and receiving between both computers.
