send ping and log result to file

P: n/a

I want to have a php script which pings a host with ping -t all the
time and it shoukld write these things to a logfile.
When it comes like "timout exceeded" it should write this only once to a
file. Because if timout is 2000 times I don't want to have timeout exceeded
200 times in a database.
But when ping times are coming they should be logged in a file with date and
time when the ping accured.

Is this possible? - if yes, how?
