NAME

bping - Send and receive Bundle Protocol echo bundles.

SYNOPSIS

bping [-c count] [-i interval] [-p priority] [ -q wait] [-r flags] [-t ttl] srcEID destEID [reporttoEID]

DESCRIPTION

bping sends bundles from srcEID to destEID. If the destEID echoes the bundles back (for instance, it is a bpecho endpoint), bping will print the round-trip time. When complete, bping will print statistics before exiting. It is very similar to ping, except it works with the bundle protocol.
bping terminates when one of the following happens: it receives the SIGINT signal (Ctrl+C), it receives responses to all of the bundles it sent, or it has sent all count of its bundles and waited wait seconds.

EXIT STATUS

These exit statuses are taken from ping.
"0"
bping has terminated normally, and received responses to all the packets it sent.
"1"
bping has terminated normally, but it did not receive responses to all the packets it sent.
"2"
bping has terminated due to an error. Details should be noted in the ion.log log file.

FILES

No configuration files are needed.

ENVIRONMENT

No environment variables apply.

DIAGNOSTICS

Diagnostic messages produced by bping are written to the ION log file ion.log and printed to standard error. Diagnostic messages that don't cause bping to terminate indicate a failure parsing an echo response bundle. This means that destEID isn't an echo endpoint: it's responding with some other bundle message of an unexpected format.
Can't attach to BP.
bpadmin has not yet initialized Bundle Protocol operations.
Can't open own endpoint.
Another application has already opened ownEndpointId. Terminate that application and rerun.
bping bundle reception failed.
BP system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun.
No space for ZCO extent.
ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun.
Can't create ZCO.
ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun.
bping can't send echo bundle.
BP system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun.
