NAME

ibsysstat - system status on an InfiniBand address

SYNOPSIS

ibsysstat [options] <dest lid | guid> [<op>]

DESCRIPTION

ibsysstat uses vendor mads to validate connectivity between IB nodes and obtain other information about the IB node. ibsysstat is run as client/server. Default is to run as client.

OPTIONS

Current supported operations:
 
ping \- verify connectivity to server (default)
host \- obtain host information from server
cpu  \- obtain cpu information from server


-o, --oui
use specified OUI number to multiplex vendor mads
-S, --Server
start in server mode (do not return)

Addressing Flags

-G, --Guid The address specified is a Port GUID
 
-L, --Lid The address specified is a LID
 
-s, --sm_port <smlid> use 'smlid' as the target lid for SA queries.

Port Selection flags

-C, --Ca <ca_name> use the specified ca_name.
 
-P, --Port <ca_port> use the specified ca_port.

Local port Selection

Multiple port/Multiple CA support: when no IB device or port is specified (see the "local umad parameters" below), the libibumad library selects the port to use by the following criteria:
1.
the first port that is ACTIVE.
2.
if not found, the first port that is UP (physical link up).

 
If a port and/or CA name is specified, the libibumad library attempts to fulfill the user request, and will fail if it is not possible.
 
For example:
 
ibaddr                 # use the first port (criteria #1 above)
ibaddr -C mthca1       # pick the best port from "mthca1" only.
ibaddr -P 2            # use the second (active/up) port from the first available IB device.
ibaddr -C mthca0 -P 2  # use the specified port only.




Debugging flags

-d
raise the IB debugging level. May be used several times (-ddd or -d -d -d).

-e
show send and receive errors (timeouts and others)

 
-h, --help show the usage message
-v, --verbose
increase the application verbosity level. May be used several times (-vv or -v -v -v)

 
-V, --version show the version info.

Configuration flags

-t, --timeout <timeout_ms> override the default timeout for the solicited mads.
 
--config, -z <config_file> Specify alternate config file.
Default: /etc/infiniband-diags/ibdiag.conf
