Crisis! Outage!! My online server repository is also down. Need to figure out quickly which and all server is Alive. Luckily I have a list of servers, and I know the subnet of quite a few of them. This is how would I go about -
for i in `cat wslist.txt`; do nc -v -w 1 -z $i 22 ; done
for i in `cat wslist.txt`; do nmap -sP -n $i ; done | grep down
With the help of Broadcast address,
# ifconfig | grep Bcast
inet addr:172.19.17.143 Bcast:172.19.17.255 Mask:255.255.254.0
# ping -b 172.19.17.255
Note: Please remember, some/most of the routers are configured to filter broadcast and multicast packets to prevent broadcast storm, if so, broadcast is useless.
