LSVIO(8) LSVIO(8)

NAME

lsvio - list virtual I/O adapters and devices

SYNOPSIS

lsvio [ -v | --version] [-s | --scsi] [-e | --ethernet] [ -d | --devices] [-p<database-filename> | --path=<database-filename> | -z<database-archive> | --zip=<database-archive>] [-D | --debug] [-h | --help]
 

DESCRIPTION

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

lsvio lists virtual I/O adapters and devices. lsvio retrieves information from lsvpd's hardware inventory database. Therefore, the vpdupdate(8) command must have been executed prior to running lsvio.
 

OPTIONS

-v|--version
Prints the version of tool.
 
-s|--scsi
Lists names and physical locations of virtual SCSI adapters.
 
-e|--ethernet
Lists names and physical locations of virtual Ethernet adapters.
 
-d|--devices
Lists virtual SCSI devices and their associated adapters.
 
-p<database-filename>|--path=<database-filename>
Use <database-filename> as the hardware inventory database, rather than the default database. Path specified must be a full path including filename. ( /var/lib/lsvpd/vpd.db).
 
This option is useful for producing output for previous hardware inventory databases that have been replaced by the system.
 
-z<database-archive>|--zip=<database-archive>
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This option is useful for producing output for old hardware inventory databases that have been archived by the system.
 
-D|--debug
Display extra information about the devices. For example, sysfs location, device-tree node etc., is displayed.
 
-h|--help
Display a help screen and quit.
 

FILES

/var/lib/lsvpd/vpd.db
Database file used by lsvio.
 

BUGS

lsvio is supported since Linux 2.6 on systems with virtual I/O. On other systems lsvio will probably exit with an error message.
