OID for extended PING

I need the OID that can emulate and extended PING from a router.

ex. ping source loopback1

Otherwise, how can this be accomplished from an NMS prospective.

Re: OID for extended PING

Is not possible at this point, the only MIB for ?ping? features is CISCO-PING-MIB and it does not contain any OID allowing an extended ping.

You can check it by yourself at:

Re: OID for extended PING

Have a look at this link:

This gives some info on using SNMP to perform pings, and some configurable parameters. The CISCO-PING-MIB cannot do

remote ping using another source, but IT IS possible with another MIB.

You can try to use this CISCO-RTTMON-MIB which is only supported in the newer 12.1 and 12.2 IOS versions (and later):

Pay attention to:

This allows you to specify both source and target IP addresses as you can do via the CLI. However, building this table via SNMP can be a lot of work.

Re: OID for extended PING

Thanks a lot for your help.... this is excatly what I was looking for! You are Da'MAN!

I know there are a lot of things can't be done (and easy to say as such), but if you take the time to think about it... a lot more things can be done.
