Command introduction

The ping command is used to test the network connectivity between hosts.

Ping is a simple way to send network data to and receive network data from another computer on the network. It is usually used to test whether it can be accessed through the network with another system, and if so, how long it will take to exchange the data.

Syntax format

ping [options] destination
ping -6 [options] destination

Option description

-C < completion times >   # Specify the number of times to request a response
-f   # Maximum limit detection
-I < interval seconds >   # Specify the interval between sending and receiving messages
-n   # Output only values
-P < template style >   # Sets the template style for filling packets
-q   # The execution process information is not output, except the relevant information at the beginning and end
-r   # Ignore normal   Routing   Table, which directly sends the data packet to the remote host
-R   # Record routing process
-S < packet size >   # Set packet size
-T < survival value >    # Sets the size of the survival value TTL
