Is there a standard command that can be used to query this SNMP?

comment ping -c1, wait for all responses from broadcast
@jw013: just tried it with the -W option (-w doesn't work with my ping version), and it still quits after the first packet it gets in return.

comment ping -c1, wait for all responses from broadcast
@Gilles: this is the standard ping on Mac OS X 10.7.3. I can't seem to find a switch for it to tell its version (tried -v, --version, searching the man page...).

comment ping -c1, wait for all responses from broadcast
@Nils: I just want a quick way to see approximately how many hosts are connected to the network. I know about nmap, but it has been a bit slow in my experience, compared to ping.

comment ping -c1, wait for all responses from broadcast
For example, I can almost achieve what I want by "ping -c2 -i 10 192.168.1.255". It pings the broadcast and waits 10 seconds for the responses. However, in the end it sends another packet. Is there a way to make it wait 10 seconds, but not send anything afterwards?

comment ping -c1, wait for all responses from broadcast
I don't really care about "all of them", I just need most. Hence I can ping the broadcast and wait for the responses. I understand that ping has no way of knowing when will all responses arrive, but isn't there a way to specify a time for which it should wait?

comment Task manager keyboard shortcut in Linux?
Just as an aside, it's not really Ctrl+Alt+Del in Windows (although in some cases it does bring it up directly, but not always), but rather Ctrl+Shift+Escape.
