RDS-PING(1)          BSD General Commands Manual         RDS-PING(1)

     rds-ping — test reachability of remote node over RDS

     rds-ping [-c count] [-i interval] [-I local_addr] remote_addr

     rds-ping is used to test whether a remote node is reachable
     over RDS.  Its interface is designed to operate pretty much the
     standard ping(8) utility, even though the way it works is
     pretty different.

     rds-ping opens several RDS sockets and sends packets to port 0
     on the indicated host. This is a special port number to which
     no socket is bound; instead, the kernel processes incoming
     packets and responds to them.

     The following options are available for use on the command

     -c count
             Causes rds-ping to exit after sending (and receiving)
             the specified number of packets.

     -I address
             By default, rds-ping will pick the local source address
             for the RDS socket based on routing information for the
             destination address (i.e. if packets to the given des‐
             tination would be routed through interface ib0, then it
             will use the IP address of ib0 as source address).
             Using the -I option, you can override this choice.

     -i timeout
             By default, rds-ping will wait for one second between
             sending packets. Use this option to specified a differ‐
             ent interval. The timeout value is given in seconds,
             and can be a floating point number. Optionally, append
             msec or usec to specify a timeout in milliseconds or
             microseconds, respectively.
     Specifying a timeout considerably smaller than the packet
             round-trip time will produce unexpected results.

     rds-ping was written by Olaf Kirch <>.
