There are ping API's for both standard and thin client. You can use them on any peer that you have seen, whether that be one in a session with you or one that you have received an advertisement from. All you need to know is the peers well-known or unique name. AllJoyn also does a periodic heartbeat to all peers in your session and if one does not respond you will receive a session lost signal. You can use either the heartbeat and/or explicitly ping the peer depending on your use case. Here are the API's for thin and Standard Client:

Standard: QStatus BusAttachment::Ping(const char* name, uint32_t timeout)

Thin Client: AJ_Status AJ_BusPing(AJ_BusAttachment* bus, const char* name, uint32_t timeout)
