Table 255 summarizes the output in the ping MPLS display. If the device receives no responses from the destination host, review the list after Table 255 for a possible explanation.

Exclamation point (!)

number packets received

number—Number of ping responses received from a host.

percentage packet loss

percentage—Number of ping responses divided by the number of ping requests, specified as a percentage.
