vmkping [args] [host] args: -4 use IPv4 (default) -6 use IPv6 -c
set packet count -d set DF bit (IPv4) or disable fragmentation (IPv6) -D vmkernel TCP stack debug mode -i set interval (secs) -I outgoing interface - for IPv6 scope or IPv4 bypasses routing lookup -N set IP*_NEXTHOP - bypasses routing lookup for IPv4, -I option is required -s set the number of ICMP data bytes to be sent. The default is 56, which translates to a 64 byte ICMP frame when added to the 8 byte ICMP header. (Note: these sizes does not include the IP header). -t set IPv4 Time To Live or IPv6 Hop Limit -v verbose -W set timeout to wait if no responses are received (secs) -X XML output format for esxcli framework. -S The network stack instance name. If unspecified the default netstack instance is used. NOTE: In vmkernel TCP debug mode, vmkping traverses VSI and pings various configured addresses.
