Deletes the memory allocation goal from PMem modules

Synopsis

ipmctl delete [OPTIONS] -goal [TARGETS]

Description

Deletes the memory allocation goal from one or more PMem modules. This command only deletes a memory allocation goal request that has not yet been processed by platform firmware (BIOS).

If the PMem module target is used and the specified PMem modules do not include all PMem modules that are part of a memory allocation goal request the result will be PMem modules (those not included) that have a broken request which will be rejected by platform firmware (BIOS) upon the next reboot.

Options

Targets

-dimm [DimmIDs]

Deletes the memory allocation goal from specific PMem modules by optionally supplying one or more comma separated PMem module identifiers. The default is to delete the memory allocation goals from all manageable PMem modules.

-socket [SocketIds]

Deletes the memory allocation goal from the PMem modules on specific sockets by supplying the socket target and one or more comma separated socket identifiers. The default is to delete the memory allocation goals from manageable PMem modules on all sockets.

Examples

Deletes the memory allocation goal from all PMem modules on all sockets.

Limitations

In order to successfully execute this command:

Return Data

For each PMem module, the CLI will indicate the status of the operation. If a failure occurs when deleting the memory allocation goals from multiple PMem modules, the process will output a failure message for those PMem modules that failed and a success message for those that succeeded.

Sample Output

Delete memory allocation goal from PMem module (DimmID): Success
