Re: ping response

Hi,

Q means source quench:

the Source Quench is an Internet Control Message Protocol message which requests the sender to decrease the traffic rate of messages to a router or host. This message may be generated if the router or host does not have sufficient buffer space to process the request, or may occur if the router or host's buffer is approaching its limit.
