scamper is a program that is able to conduct Internet measurement
tasks to large numbers of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, in parallel, to
fill a specified packets-per-second rate. Currently, it supports the
well-known ping and traceroute techniques, as well as MDA traceroute,
alias resolution, some parts of tbit, sting, and neighbour discovery.
scamper can do ICMP-based Path MTU discovery. scamper starts with the
outgoing interface's MTU and discovers the location of Path MTU
bottlenecks. scamper performs a PMTUD search when an ICMP
fragmentation required message is not returned to establish the PMTU
to the next point in the network, followed by a TTL limited search to
infer where the failure appears to occur.

scamper (20130824-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* The following packaging updates were contributed by Zack Weinberg:
- Update upstream contact and licensing information. Add watchfile.
- Bump to debhelper compat level 9 and enable multiarch for
libscamperfile0. (Note that due to lack of packaging manpower, we
are not providing a symbols file for libscamperfile0 at this time.)
- Use dh-autoreconf instead of autotools-dev; facilitates ppc64el
support. Patch by Logan Rosen, adjusted to use upstream's instead of patching Closes: #733581.
- Standards-Version: 3.9.5 (no further changes required).
* Thanks Zack!
