[Archive] Ping delay command does not change the delay in sending ICMP requests on the EX2500



Article ID: KB15610 KB Last Updated: 19 Dec 2019Version: 2.0
The "ping <ip-address> [ tries  delay ]" command does NOT change the delay in seconds in sending ICMP requests. 

This article explains how the "ping 'delay'" command works on the EX2500 switch.
The ping command on the EX 2500 can be used to check station-to-station connectivity across the network.

Command Reference:

switch# ping <hostname> |  <ip-address>     [   tries (1-32)     [delay ]    ]

Example:  ping    10  5

<hostname> or <ip-address>   -  with the IP address if the device you are testing connectivity with
tries   -   with the number of attempts (1-32)
delay  (optional)  -  with  the timeout interval in seconds between unsuccessful attempts

Please Note:   the delay interval will not work if the ping is  successful.   It only works as the timeout if the ping is unsuccessful.
