lsdev command to check for all available network adapters.
Type and dimension: string-scalar
Optional attributes for AIX
List of hosts on the network that are pinged to determine if the network connection is alive. Enter the IP address of the host, instead of the HostName, to prevent the monitor from timing out. DNS causes the ping to hang. If more than one network host is listed, the monitor returns ONLINE if at least one of the hosts is alive.
If you do not specify network hosts, the monitor tests the NIC by sending pings to the broadcast address on the NIC.
Type and dimension: string-vector
Example: 18.104.22.168 , 22.214.171.124

Number of monitor cycles to detect if configured interface is inactive. Use PingOptimize when when you have not specified network hosts.
A value of 1 optimizes broadcast pings and requires two monitor cycles.
A value of 0 performs a broadcast ping during each monitor cycle and detects the inactive interface within the cycle.
