TPING(1)				   LAM COMMANDS 				 TPING(1)

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  diag-
       nosis 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 wipe(1) (although the use of
       wipe(1) is deprecated).

SEE ALSO
       lamhalt(1), wipe(1)
