The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The dbping -st 1 option performs an eternity worth of testing (4 seconds!) and uses up 200 connection numbers.

Once upon a time (say, 2004) four seconds was a short time for measuring performance but that was then and this is now... dbping -st 0.1 makes sense but alas it does not work.

As you found out, you can't specify a shorter time than one second.

I don't understand the motivation for specifying a shorter time. What is the issue with using 200 connection numbers?
