Command Reference > infacmd isp Command Reference > Ping


Pings a domain, service, domain gateway host, or node. If the object is available, this command displays a message that the object is available at a specific port on the gateway host machine. If the object is unavailable, this command displays a message saying that it failed to receive a response from the object.
Use this command to troubleshoot network connections. To run the infacmd isp Ping command, you must have permission on the object you want to ping.
The infacmd isp Ping command does not display results for individual service processes.
The infacmd isp Ping command uses the following syntax:

[<-DomainName|-dn> domain_name]

[<-ServiceName|-sn> service_name]

[<-GatewayAddress|-dg> domain_gateway_host:port]

[<-NodeName|-nn> node_name]

[<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]
The following table describes infacmd isp Ping options and arguments:
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Optional. Name of the service you want to ping. To enter a name that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the name in quotation marks.
Required if you do not specify the -DomainName option, or if you need to ping another domain. Gateway host machine name and port number.
Optional. Name of the node.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. If you omit this option, infacmd uses the timeout value specified in the INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT environment variable. If no value is specified in the environment variable, the default of 180 seconds is used.
