First, scamper can be supplied a list of addresses on the command line with the -i option. scamper will then measure each of the supplied addresses, in parallel, and output the results as each task completes.

Second, scamper can be supplied a list of addresses in a listfile, one address per line. Finally, scamper can be started as a daemon listening on a port specified with the -D option only accessible on the local host.scamper will then accept connections to that port, where commands can be supplied to scamper.
