Is there a ping equivalent on layer 2?

Last updated on March 24, 2023

        You can use <code>ping</code> to measure RTT between you and an IP host and thereby confirm connectivity. Is there an equivalent that can be used on L2/Ethernet with MAC addresses?

i.e. l2ping AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

(I know that l2ping is an actual utility for Bluetooth L2; just looking for an Ethernet equivalent)
