ping6-options

Use these commands to configure the behavior of the ping6 command.

To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have at least r permission to the sysgrp area. For details, see Permissions.

Syntax

execute ping6-options data-size <bytes_int>

execute ping6-options pattern <bufferpattern_hex>

execute ping6-options repeat-count <repeat_int>

execute ping6-options source {auto | <interface_ipv6>}

execute ping6-options timeout <seconds_int>

execute ping6-options tos {<service_type>}

execute ping6-options ttl <hops_int>

execute ping6-options validate-reply {yes | no}

execute ping6-options 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

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>.

No default.

repeat-count <repeat_int>

Enter the number of times to repeat the ping.

5

source {auto | <interface_ipv6>}

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

auto

timeout <seconds_int>

Enter the ping response timeout in seconds.

2

tos {<service_type>}

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.

No default.

Example

This example sets the number of pings to 3, then views the ping options to verify their configuration.

execute ping6-option repeat-count 3

execute ping6-option view-settings

The CLI would display the following:

IPV6 Ping Options:

Repeat Count: 3

Data Size: 56

Timeout: 2

Interval: 1

TTL: 64

TOS: 0

Source Address: auto

Pattern:

Pattern Size in Bytes: 0

Validate Reply: no
