Echolot is a Pinger for anonymous remailers.
Echolot, das: (German) sonic depth finder
A Pinger in the context of anonymous remailers is a program that regularily sends messages through remailers to check their reliability. It then calculates reliability statistics which are used by remailer clients to choose the chain of remailers to use.
Additionally it collects configuration parameters and keys of all remailers and offers them in a format readable by remailer clients.
