This program is part of the lsvpd package for Linux. This package is a (partial)
reimplementation of AIX's lsvpd and related commands.

presented in a `human readable' format or a more structured format that is
easily parsable by other software. The Linux version does not support the

be omitted but other version information will still be listed.

- Only show configuration information for the component with
the given name.
- Use <database-file> as the hardware inventory
database, rather than the default file. Note the supplied filename must
include a full path. ( /var/lib/lsvpd/vpd.db).
This option is useful for producing output for previous hardware inventory
databases that have been replaced by the system.
- Use <database-archive> as the hardware inventory
database, rather than the default directory ( /var/lib/lsvpd/). The
archive has been compressed using gzip(1).
This option is useful for producing output for old hardware inventory
databases that have been archived by the system.
- Display a help screen and quit.

will not reflect changes in firmware/microcode versions for
certain hardware without a reboot. This will (hopefully) be supported in a
later version on Linux 2.6 systems with dynamic /proc/device-tree
Version information for some adapters may not be available because retrieval
mechanisms have not yet been implemented.
