I need to write a Flex application that will run in a browser and ping a specified server every minute to measure latency and packet loss. If the latency gets too high, the application will display a red icon. How can I execute an ICMP ping to a specified server within a Flex application? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Will flash.system.shell work from within the browser? All I want to do is test the round trip time from my swf back to the server. I am guessing I could do this by executing a service call and measuring round trip time myself but then I would not be able to measure packet loss.
