Description:

As simple question as possible... seeking good methods of calculating the ping timeout. No CPAN modules for this :(

Possibly related - *nix utility bing - "a point-to-point bandwidth measurement tool (hence the 'b'), based on ping." Available for Debian at http://www.debian.org/Packages/stable/net/bing.html, and I think RedHat.

If you roll your own solution, should probably run several iterations to increase accuracy of answer.

Not completely clear on what you're asking, but here goes:

You may be able to do this with Net::Ping by establishing a positive response from remote host, then reducing timeout until no response (similar to internal operation of traceroute/tracert).
