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.

           fcping -c 3 -h n0.170 -F 0xbf0027

           3 frames sent, 3 received 0 errors, 0.000% loss, avg. rt time 8.647 ms

       Sends  ELS  ECHO  to  WWNN  0x1000001B213C9DDA  from  interface  n0.170
       continuously with payload of 32 bytes and hex-dump  the  reply  to  the
