Question Query regarding ping command #2 [Ubuntu]


Hi, Please find my question below:

Through ping command we can get info regarding packet received, sent, loss, duplication.

Ques 1: Is there any way we can send Packet data of different sizes, one after another ?

Ques 2: If Yes can we implement reordering scenario in it.

Ques 3: Also can we limit bandwidth usage while sending packets ?


Thanks

Is this homework? Please note the LQ rule concerning homework. I repeat it here for your convenience.

Have you tried the command
Code:
man ping
on a terminal? That may help you get some answers for your assignment.

No. Its just for my knowledge. I want to know whether i can do more with ping command or not & if there is any other tool or command for the same, i would like to know that too.

# Yes i already tried man ping .. but there is no options to perform reordering or limit bandwidth

I don't understand what you're looking for. For example you can do this with your ping command:
Quote:
-s packetsize
Specifies the number of data bytes to be sent. The default is 56, which translates
into 64 ICMP data bytes when combined with the 8 bytes of ICMP header data.
There are many other things you can do listed in the man entry.
So that answers your question, correct?

What iam asking is while sending packets from 1 PC to another, can we limit the bandwidth ?
& for reordering , suppose i want to send 4 packets 1,2,3,4. can i change the order in which they received by 2nd PC ?

ping is originally used to measure the line, and there was no reason to restrict it. So ping itself is not able to limit bandwidth and also cannot handle reordering. I think you need to find another tool (or implement something) for that.
