Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT PHY EVENT LIST function
request to an SMP target. The SMP target is identified by the
and the SAS_ADDR
. Depending on the interface, the
may be deduced from the SMP_DEVICE
. The mpt interface
to identify a HBA (an SMP initiator) and needs the
to differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple
Reports zero or more phy event list descriptors. Each descriptor contains a phy
identifier, a phy event source, a phy event (i.e. a count) and a peak value
detector theshold. At least one phy event should be maintained for each phy.
Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -d, --desc
- precede each phy event descriptor with a line announcing
its descriptor index number. Index numbers start at 1.
- -e, --enumerate
- enumerate all of the known Phy Event Source names, one per
line preceded by its value in hex. Ignores SMP_DEVICE if it is
given; most other options are also ignored. Exits after displaying the
- -f, --force
- force the report to continue after the last descriptor
index has been exceeded. The default action is too stop the report when
the last descriptor index has been exceeded. at 1.
- -h, --help
- output the usage message then exit.
- -H, --hex
- output the response (less the CRC field) in
- -i, --index=IN
- starting phy event list descriptor index. IN is a
value between 0 and 65535. The default is 1. If IN is 0 then the
response should contain no phy event list descriptors but the 'last phy
event list descriptor index' and 'phy event list descriptor length' fields
in the response should be set appropriately. The last point was clarified
in SPL-2 revision 3.
- -l, --long
- prefix each phy event source string with its numeric
identifier in hex. Also place "phy_id=" in front of the phy
identifier number. For example: "phy_id=3: [0x1]: Invalid word count:
29"; without this option this line would be: "3: Invalid word
- -n, --nonz
- only show phy events with non-zero counts or peak values.
The default is to show all phy events in the response.
- -I, --interface=PARAMS
- interface specific parameters. In this case
"interface" refers to the path through the operating system to
the SMP initiator. See the smp_utils man page for more information.
- -r, --raw
- send the response (less the CRC field) to stdout in binary.
All error messages are sent to stderr.
- -s, --sa=SAS_ADDR
- specifies the SAS address of the SMP target device.
Typically this is an expander. This option may not be needed if the
SMP_DEVICE has the target's SAS address within it. The
SAS_ADDR is in decimal but most SAS addresses are shown in
hexadecimal. To give a number in hexadecimal either prefix it with '0x' or
put a trailing 'h' on it.
- -v, --verbose
- increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple
- -V, --version
- print the version string and then exit.
Similar information is maintained for SAS SSP target phys (e.g. on a SAS disk).
It can be obtained from the Protocol Specific Port log page with the sg_logs
Similar information may be obtained for SAS initiator phys (e.g. on a SAS HBA).
As an example in Linux 2.6.28 error information can be found in this directory
/sys/class/sas_phy/phy-4:0 (for the phy 0 in SCSI/SAS host 4).
Similar information may be obtained for SATA device phys (e.g. on a SATA disk).
If there is a SAT layer between OS and the SATA device then the
sg_sat_phy_event utility can fetch the information.
The SMP REPORT PHY EVENT LIST function was introduced in SAS-2 .
