+For troubleshooting of network issues in CloudStack hosted networks, CloudStack allows
+the administrator to execute network-utility commands (ping, traceroute or arping)
+remotely on system VMs.
+To run either a ping, traceroute or arping through the CloudStack UI:
+#. As an administrator, log in to the CloudStack UI.
+#. Navigate to Infrastructure > System VMs or Virtual Routers.
+#. Click on the Run Diagnostics button. |run-diagnostics-icon.png|
+#. A form will pop up similar to this;
+      |diagnostics-form.png|
+#. Fill in the details and click OK.
+The Extra Args parameter is for specifying command line optional parameters
+as one would when executing any of the tools from the terminal or command line.
+The supported versions are Debian 9 based since system VMs are built using the
+same Debian 9 based templates.
