CLI Reference

execute ping-option/ping6-option

Use these commands to configure the behavior of the execute ping/ping6 command.

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 {<service_type>}

execute ping-option ttl <hops_int>

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

execute ping-option view-settings

data-size

Datagram size in bytes.The default is 56.

This option enables 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>.

df-bit

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.

pattern

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

Number of times to repeat the ping. The default is 5.

source

Network interface from which the ping is sent. Enter either auto or a FortiADC network interface IP address. The default is auto.

timeout

Response timeout in seconds. The default is 2.

tos

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.

ttl

Time-to-live (TTL) value. The default is 64.

validate-reply

Whether or not to validate ping replies.

view-settings

Display the current ping option settings.
