SYNOPSISdceping [-n number] [-s time] [-v] [-C] [service_name ...] required to
specify the literal strings, NAMESPACE or STRING_BINDING (see nond‐
OPTIONS-n number Specify the number of pinging cycles. Each service is tested
once per cycle. The default is one pinging cycle. Specifying
-n 0 makes pinging continuous.
-s time Specify time, in seconds, to wait between pinging cycles. You
must specify more than one pinging cycle with the -n option
in order to use -s.
-v Run in verbose mode.
-C Ping only core DCE services. This option is ineffective if a
service_name is specified on the command line.
DESCRIPTIONdceping verifies that a local DCE client can communicate with DCE and
other services. It uses the RPC management interface to determine if
the DCE service is listening. The core DCE services that dceping
checks include secd, cdsd, gdad, rpcd, cdsadv, dtsd, and sec_clientd.
You can ping other DCE and non-DCE services by naming them in the file,
/opt/dcelocal/hpadmin/etc/nondcesvc. If you want to determine at run
time what services you want dceping to ping, you may do so using the
same file. See the manpage, nondcesvc(4), for more information.
You may specify the services to ping on the command line separated by
blanks. In this case, dceping does not ping any DCE core services or
the services listed in /opt/dcelocal/hpadmin/etc/nondcesvc. The ser‐
vice_name specified could be either a name in the DCE Cell Directory
Service Namespace or an RPC string binding. It is not
