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).

    Or by taking the current time before and after the successful ping and subtracting them.
