Description

This command sends ICMPInternet Control Message Protocol. ICMP is an error reporting protocol. It is used by network devices such as routers, to send error messages and operational information to the source IP address when network problems prevent delivery of IP packets. echo packets to the specified IP or IPv6 address.

Usage Guidelines

You can send ICMPInternet Control Message Protocol. ICMP is an error reporting protocol. It is used by network devices such as routers, to send error messages and operational information to the source IP address when network problems prevent delivery of IP packets. echo packets to a specified IP or IPv6 address.

Examples

The following example pings 192.0.2.1.

(host) [mynode] #ping 192.0.2.1

 

Press 'q' to abort.

Sending 5, 92-byte ICMP Echos to 192.0.2.1, timeout is 2 seconds:

.....

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 0.03/0.0312/0.036 ms

The following example pings the specified IPv6 global address:

(host) [mynode] #ping ipv6 2001:db8:0:abcd::1

 

Press 'q' to abort.

Sending 5, 92-byte ICMPv6 Echos to 2001:db8:0:abcd::1, timeout is 2 seconds:

.....

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 0.03/0.0312/0.036 ms
