network traceroute6

traceroute6

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The network traceroute6 command performs a network probe from a node to a specified IPv6 address. The command requires a source node or logical interface, Vserver from where traceroute6 will originate and a destination IPv6 address. traceroute6 is performed between the source and destination.

Parameters

{ -node <nodename> - Node
Use this parameter to originate traceroute6 from the node you specify. This parameter is available only to cluster administrators.
| -lif <lif-name>} - Logical Interface
Use this parameter to originate traceroute6 from the logical interface you specify.
-vserver <vserver name> - LIF Owner
Use this parameter to originate traceroute6 from the Vserver you specify. The default value is the system Vserver for cluster administrators.
[-debug-mode | -d [true]] - Debug Mode
Use this parameter to enable socket level debugging. The default value is false.
{ [-icmp6 | -I [true]] - ICMP6 ECHO instead of UDP
Use this parameter to specify the use of ICMP6 ECHO instead of UDP datagrams for the probes. The default value is false.
| [-udp | -U [true]]} - UDP
Use this parameter to specify the use of UDP datagrams for the probes. The default value is true.
[-numeric | -n [true]] - Print Hops Numerically
Use this parameter to print the hop addresses only numerically rather than symbolically and numerically. The default value is false.
[-verbose | -v [true]] - Verbose Output
Use this parameter to display all received ICMP packets, rather than just TIME_EXCEEDED and UNREACHABLE packets. The default value is false.
[-first-hop | -f <integer>] - Number of Hops to Skip in Trace
Use this parameter to specify the number of hops to skip in trace. The default value is 1.
[-gateway | -g <Remote InetAddress>] - Intermediate Gateway
Use this parameter to specify the intermediate gateway.
[-hop-limit | -m <integer>] - Maximum Number of Hops
Use this parameter to specify the maximum hoplimit, upto 255. The default value is 64 hops.
[-port | -p <integer>] - Base UDP Port Number
Use this parameter to specify the base UDP port number used in probes. The default value is port 33434.
[-nqueries | -q <integer>] - Number of Queries
Use this parameter to specify the number of probes per hop. The default value is 3 probes.
[-wait-time | -w <integer>] - Wait Between Packets (secs)
Use this parameter to specify the delay time between probes in seconds. The default value is 5 seconds.
-destination <Remote InetAddress> - Destination
Use this parameter to specify the remote IPv6 address destination of traceroute6.
[-packet-size <integer>] - Packet Size
Use this parameter to specify the size of probe packets, in bytes. The default value is 16 bytes for ICMP6 ECHO and 12 bytes for UDP datagrams.

Examples

The following example shows traceroute6 from node node1 to the destination fd20:8b1e:b255:4071:d255:1fcd:a8cd:b9e8.
