NAME

       tping - Send echo messages to LAM nodes.

SYNTAX

       tping [-hv] [-c <count>] [-d <delay>] [-l <length>] <nodes>

OPTIONS

       -h            Print the command help menu.

       -v            Turn OFF verbose mode.

       -c <count>    Send <count> messages.

       -d <delay>    Delay <delay> seconds between each message.

       -l <length>   Each message is <length> bytes long.

DESCRIPTION

       The  tping command sends messages to, and collects replies from, a list
       of nodes, via the LAM echo server.  It is similar to the  UNIX  ping(8)
       command, and is used as a quick diagnosis of the LAM network.

       Unless  options are specified, tping sends a 1 byte message an infinite
       number of times, displaying the roundtrip time of each  message  as  it
       completes, with a delay of 1 second between roundtrips.  After the loop
       is broken (with keyboard interrupt, eg: ^C),  tping  prints  statistics
       about all roundtrip messages.

EXAMPLES

       tping h
           Echo messages to the local node.

       tping -v n7 -l 1000 -c 10
           Echo  1000  byte  messages  to  node 7.  Stay silent while working.
           Stop after 10 roundtrips and report statistics.

BUGS

       There is no built-in timeout and tping will wait forever to receive  an
       echo.  If no echo is received, due to a dead link or node, tping hangs.
       Stop the process with a keyboard suspend signal (eg: ^Z) and  terminate
       LAM  with  lamhalt(1)  or lamwipe(1) (although the use of lamwipe(1) is
       deprecated).
