Gping is a free and open source ping command line application for Linux, Windows, MacOS and Android. It shows the ping output in graph for ping time vs multiple hosts. You can also graph the execution time for commands, set your own custom colors for the graph, ping specific AWS cloud regions and more. It is written in Rust and released under MIT License. Totally fun but useless tool.
