Send an ICMP echo request to the host.
ip-opt
Send ICMP echo requests with different IP options, to see which IP options are supported.
frag
Send an ICMP echo request as 8-byte fragments.
frag-new
Send an ICMP echo request as 8-byte fragments with an overlapping 16-byte fragment, favoring newer data in reassembly.
frag-old
Send an ICMP echo request as 8-byte fragments with an overlapping 16-byte fragment, favoring older data in reassembly.
frag-timeout
Send an ICMP echo request as 8-byte fragments, omitting the last fragment, and wait for an ICMP time-exceeded-in-reassembly reply.
