--- 172.23.11.254 ping statistics ---
1000 packets transmitted, 1000 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.267/0.267/0.267/0.000 ms

you can all 'ping -c <number>' e.g. 'ping -c 100' to specify when ping should exit. You can also specify '-t' with a number of seconds for timeouts. you don't have to exit with ctrl-c.
