NAME
     spray -- send many packets to host

SYNOPSIS
     spray [-c count] [-d delay] [-l length] host ...

DESCRIPTION
     Spray sends multiple RPC packets to host and records how many of them were correctly
     received and how long it took.

     The options are as follows:

     -c count
	     Send count packets.

     -d delay
	     Pause delay microseconds between sending each packet.

     -l length
	     Set the length of the packet that holds the RPC call message to length bytes.  Not
	     all values of length are possible because RPC data is encoded using XDR.  Spray
	     rounds up to the nearest possible value.

     Spray is intended for use in network testing, measurement, and management.  This command can
     be very hard on a network and should be used with caution.
