NAME¶IBPING - ping an InfiniBand address
SYNOPSIS¶ibping [options] <dest lid | guid>
DESCRIPTION¶ibping uses vendor mads to validate connectivity between IB nodes. On exit, (IP) ping like output is show. ibping is run as client/server. Default is to run as client. Note also that a default ping server is implemented within the kernel.
OPTIONS¶-c, --count stop after count packets
-f, --flood flood destination: send packets back to back without delay
-o, --oui use specified OUI number to multiplex vendor mads
-S, --Server start in server mode (do not return)
Addressing Flags¶-L, --Lid The address specified is a LID
-G, --Guid The address specified is a Port GUID
-s, --sm_port <smlid> use 'smlid' as the target lid for SA queries.
Port Selection flags¶-C, --Ca <ca_name> use the specified ca_name.
-P, --Port <ca_port> use the specified ca_port.
Local port Selection¶Multiple port/Multiple CA support: when no IB device or port is specified (see the "local umad parameters" below), the libibumad library selects the port to use by the following criteria:
- the first port that is ACTIVE.
- if not found, the first port that is UP (physical link up).
If a port and/or CA name is specified, the libibumad library attempts to fulfill the user request, and will fail if it is not possible.
ibaddr # use the first port (criteria #1 above) ibaddr -C mthca1 # pick the best port from "mthca1" only. ibaddr -P 2 # use the second (active/up) port from the first available IB device. ibaddr -C mthca0 -P 2 # use the specified port only.
Configuration flags¶--config, -z <config_file> Specify alternate config file.
-t, --timeout <timeout_ms> override the default timeout for the solicited mads.
Debugging flags¶-h, --help show the usage message
- raise the IB debugging level. May be used several times (-ddd or -d -d -d).
- show send and receive errors (timeouts and others)
- -v, --verbose
- increase the application verbosity level. May be used several times (-vv or -v -v -v)
-V, --version show the version info.
A global config file is provided to set some of the common options for all tools. See supplied config file for details.
