       IBPING - ping an InfiniBand address


       ibping [options] <dest lid | guid>


       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.


       -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

          1. the first port that is ACTIVE.

          2. 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.

          For example:

              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.
          Default: /etc/infiniband-diags/ibdiag.conf

       -t, --timeout <timeout_ms> override the default timeout for the solicited mads.

   Debugging flags
       -h, --help      show the usage message

       -d     raise the IB debugging level.  May be used several times (-ddd or -d -d -d).

       -e     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, --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.
