verify the ip status

I have ip list in my network

I need to check which ip is unused

what is better solution?

Write the ping script or use other command

arping has some option which will tell you if an ip address is already
present on the network.

apt-get install arping
man arping

The networking scripts used in redhat systems use arping to check
whether an ip address already exists before assigning it to an interface.
