I have been trying to investigate the ToS field in the extended ping command but cannot find much documentation on how to use it. Can this be used for effectively troubleshooting QOS configs and does anyone know where i can find more information on it.

The TOS value by default is zero for all ping packets going out. So if you set this value, the TOS field in the ping packet will be set and send out. You should be able to test qos configs and see some counters getting hit by setting these TOS bits.
