Ping & Report To DB

Hi Guys,

Part of the app we’re building we need to display information about a user being online or offline so we can quickly resolve any offline user issues.

Was thinking of doing this by simply pinging the public IP address of a user every 1 minute or so and then recording the response against a thing / user in a DB.

Is there any way to ping an external IP from within an app and then report its response?
