CLI Reference

ping-option

Use this command to configure behavior of ping.

Syntax

execute ping-option data-size <bytes_int>

execute ping-option df-bit {yes | no}

execute ping-option pattern <bufferpattern_hex>

execute ping-option repeat-count <repeat_int>

execute ping-option source {auto | <interface_ipv4>}

execute ping-option timeout <seconds_int>

execute ping-option tos {default | lowcost | lowdelay | reliability | throughput}

execute ping-option ttl <hops_int>

execute ping-option validate-reply {yes | no}

execute ping-option view-settings

Variable

Description

Default

data-size <bytes_int>

Enter datagram size in bytes.This allows you to send out packets of different sizes for testing the effect of packet size on the connection. If you want to configure the pattern that will be used to buffer small datagrams to reach this size, also configure pattern <bufferpattern_hex>.

56

df-bit {yes | no}

Enter either yes to set the DF bit in the IP header to prevent the ICMP packet from being fragmented, or enter no to allow the ICMP packet to be fragmented.

no

pattern <bufferpattern_hex>

Enter a hexadecimal pattern, such as 00ffaabb, to fill the optional data buffer at the end of the ICMP packet. The size of the buffer is determined by data-size <bytes_int>.

 

repeat-count <repeat_int>

Enter the number of times to repeat the ping.

5

source {auto | <interface_ipv4>}

Select the network interface from which the ping is sent. Enter either auto or a mail network interface’s IP address.

auto

timeout <seconds_int>

Enter the ping response timeout in seconds.

2

tos {default | lowcost | lowdelay | reliability | throughput}

Enter the IP type-of-service option value, either:

  • default: Do not indicate (that is, set the TOS byte to 0).
  • lowcost: Minimize cost.
  • lowdelay: Minimize delay.
  • reliability: Maximize reliability.
  • throughput: Maximize throughput.

default

ttl <hops_int>

Enter the time-to-live (TTL) value.

64

validate-reply {yes | no}

Select whether or not to validate ping replies.

no

view-settings

Display the current ping option settings.

 

Example

This example sets the number of pings to three and the source IP address to that of the port2 network interface, 10.10.10.1, then views the ping options to verify their configuration.

execute ping-option repeat-count 3

execute ping-option source 10.10.10.1

execute ping-option view-settings

The CLI would display the following:

Ping Options:

Repeat Count: 3

Data Size: 56

Timeout: 2

TTL: 64

TOS: 0

DF bit: unset

Source Address: 10.10.10.1

Pattern:

Pattern Size in Bytes: 0

Validate Reply: no
