Alternative to ping

0 votes
I want to see if an Amazon EC2 instance is open, but by default Amazon EC2 blocks ping requests. There is a way to do this by changing the security policy of the instance. Excluding that, what would be the closest alternative to "see if a server is responsive" and is lightweight?
