Win32_PingStatus class

The Win32_PingStatusWMI class represents the values returned by the standard ping command. More information about ping can be found in RFC 791.

Windows Server 2003:  Win32_PingStatus only returns data for computers running IPv4. For more information, see IPv6 and IPv4 Support in WMI. Starting with Windows Vista, Win32_PingStatus can return data for computers that have both IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of the inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

Members

The Win32_PingStatus class has these types of members:

Properties

The Win32_PingStatus class has these properties.

Address
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Value of the address requested. The form of the value can be either the computer name ("wxyz1234"), IPv4 address ("192.168.177.124"), or IPv6 address ("2010:836B:4179::836B:4179").

BufferSize
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Buffer size sent with the ping command. The default value is 32.

NoFragmentation
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

If TRUE, "Do not Fragment" is marked on the packets sent. The default is FALSE, not fragmented.

PrimaryAddressResolutionStatus
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Status of the address resolution process. If successful, the value is 0 (zero). Any other value indicates an unsuccessful address resolution.

ProtocolAddress
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (4096)

Address that the destination used to reply. The default is "".

ProtocolAddressResolved
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (4096)

Resolved address corresponding to the ProtocolAddress property. The default is "".

RecordRoute
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

How many hops should be recorded while the packet is in route. The default is 0 (zero).

ReplyInconsistency
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Inconsistent reply data is reported.

ReplySize
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Represents the size of the buffer returned.

ResolveAddressNames
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Command resolves address names of output address values. The default is FALSE, which indicates no resolution.

ResponseTime
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Time elapsed to handle the request.

ResponseTimeToLive
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Time to live from the moment the request is received.

RouteRecord
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Record of intermediate hops.

RouteRecordResolved
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Resolved address that corresponds to the RouteRecord value.

SourceRoute
Data type: String
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Comma-separated list of valid Source Routes. The default is "".

SourceRouteType
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Type of source route option to be used on the host list specified in the SourceRoute property. If a value outside of the ValueMap is specified, then 0 (zero) is assumed. The default is 0 (zero).

ValueMeaning

None

1

Timeout
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Time-out value in milliseconds. If a response is not received in this time, no response is assumed. The default is 1000 milliseconds.

TimeStampRecord
Data type: uint32 array
Access type: Read-only

Record of time stamps for intermediate hops.

TimeStampRecordAddress
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Intermediate hop that corresponds to the TimeStampRecord value.

TimeStampRecordAddressResolved
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only

Resolved address that corresponds to the TimeStampRecordAddress value.

TimeStampRoute
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

How many hops should be recorded with time stamp information while the packet is in route. A time stamp is the number of milliseconds that have passed since midnight Universal Time (UT). If the time is not available in milliseconds or cannot be provided with respect to midnight UT, then any time may be inserted as a time stamp, provided the high order bit of the Timestamp property is set to 1 (one) to indicate the use of a nonstandard value. The default is 0 (zero).

TimeToLive
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Life span of the ping packet in seconds. The value is treated as an upper limit. All routers must decrement this value by 1 (one). When this value becomes 0 (zero), the packet is dropped by the router. The default value is 80 seconds. The hops between routers rarely take this amount of time.

TypeofService
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key

Type of service that is used. The default value is 0 (zero).

ValueMeaning
0

Normal

2

Minimize Monetary Cost

4

Maximize Reliability

8

Maximize Throughput

16

Remarks

This class does not support enumeration. For more information about implementing WMI enumeration in C++, see Enumerating WMI. In scripting, Win32_PingStatus does not support the enumeration calls SWbemServices.InstancesOf or SWbemObject.Instances. It does support SWbemServices.ExecQuery and SWbemServices.GetObject.

Examples

The Get computers ping status, IP, OS version, sp version, uptime and last boot gui PowerShell sample on TechNet Gallery retrieves a variety of information from a specified system, including the Ping status, and displays the information in a GUI.

The Collect userprofile, recycle bin and selective folder size for remote servers PowerShell sample on TechNet Gallery uses Win32_PingStatus to check whether a server is reachable.

The following PowerShell code sample demonstrates the use of Win32_PingStatus.


[Cmdletbinding()]
param ( 
[Parameter(Position=0,mandatory=$false,ValueFromPipeline=$true)]
[string] $comp = "localhost")

### 
# Start of Script 
### 

Process {
# Display intput
"Computer to ping: $comp"

# Now ping the system
$ping = get-wmiobject -Query "select * from win32_pingstatus where Address='$comp'"

# Display Results
if ($ping.statuscode -eq 0) {
"Computer responded in: {0}ms" -f $ping.responsetime
}
else {
"Computer did not respond"
}
}
#
