NAME fcping - Fibre Channel Ping (ELS ECHO) tool

SYNOPSIS fcping [-fqx] [ -i interval ] [ -c count ] [ -s size ] -h source target

source = interface | MAC | WWPN | FC-ID

target = -P WWPN | -N WWPN | -F FC-ID

DESCRIPTION The fcping command performs the Fibre Channel FC-LS-2 ECHO ELS command and displays the reply. The max payload for fcping is 2108 bytes. When no -c is given, fcping will continue until user interrupts.

OPTIONS -f Flood ping

-q Quiet! just print summary

-x Hex dump of responses

-i interval Wait interval seconds between each ping

-c count Stop after sending count pings

-h source Source is interface like ethX, MAC address, WWPN, or FC-ID

-s size Byte-length of ping request payload (max 2108)

-F FC-ID Destination port ID

-P WWPN Destination world-wide port name

-N WWNN Destination world-wide node name

EXAMPLES Sends ELS ECHO to Port FC-ID 0xbf0027 from interface n0.170 with max 3 pings.
