Specifies an action that determines if a resource is active and is responding to requests.

Namespace:   System.Management.Automation
Assembly:  System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)

public const string Ping

Field Value

Type: System.String

For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use verbs such as Connect or Test for this action.

The verb portion of a cmdlet name specifies the action that is taken by the cmdlet and is specified by the Cmdlet attribute. For more information about the declaration syntax used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.

For more information about the guidelines for selecting verb names, see Approved Verbs for Windows PowerShell Commands.

This example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute:

[Cmdlet(VerbsDiagnostic.Ping, "Dns")]
public class PingDnsCommand : Cmdlet
