ping

To determine the network connectivity to another network device, use the ping command.

ping {dest-address | hostname} [count {number | unlimited}] [df-bit] [interval seconds] [packet-size bytes] [source src-address] [timeout seconds] [vrf {vrf-name | default | management}]

hostname

Hostname of the destination device. The hostname is case sensitive.

count

(Optional) Specifies the number of transmissions to send.

number

Number of pings. The range is from 1 to 655350. The default is 5.

unlimited

Allows an unlimited number of pings.

df-bit

(Optional) Enables the do-not-fragment bit in the IPv4 header. The default is disabled.
