ipmctl-show-region - Man Page

Retrieves a list of persistent memory regions.

Synopsis

ipmctl show [OPTIONS] -region [TARGETS]

Description

Retrieves a list of persistent memory regions of PMem module capacity.

Options

-a, -all

Shows all attributes.

Note

The all and display options are exclusive and may not be used together.

-d (attributes), -display (attributes)

Filters the returned attributes by explicitly specifying a comma-separated list of any of the attributes defined in the Return Data section.

Note

The all and display options are exclusive and may not be used together.

-h, -help

Displays help for the command.

-ddrt

Used to specify DDRT as the desired transport protocol for the current invocation of ipmctl.

-smbus

Used to specify SMBUS as the desired transport protocol for the current invocation of ipmctl.

Note

The -ddrt and -smbus options are mutually exclusive and may not be used together.

-lpmb

Used to specify large transport payload size for the current invocation of ipmctl.

-spmb

Used to specify small transport payload size for the current invocation of ipmctl.

Note

The -lpmb and -spmb options are mutually exclusive and may not be used together.

-nfit

Used to specify NFIT table as the source instead of PCD (default) for the current invocation of ipmctl.

-o (text|nvmxml), -output (text|nvmxml)

Changes the output format. One of: "text" (default) or "nvmxml".

-u (B|MB|MiB|GB|GiB|TB| TiB), -units (B|MB|MiB|GB|GiB|TB| TiB)

Changes the units that capacities are displayed in for this command. One of: bytes (B), megabytes (MB), mebibytes (MiB), gigabytes (GB), gibibytes (GiB), terabytes (TB) or tebibytes (TiB).

Targets

-region [RegionIDs]

Restricts output to specific persistent memory regions by providing one or more comma separated region identifiers. The default is to display the persistent memory regions across all manageable PMem modules.

-socket [SocketIDs]

Restricts output to the persistent memory regions on specific sockets by supplying the socket target and one or more comma-separated socket identifiers. The default is to display all sockets.

Examples

Shows all attributes of all persistent memory regions in the server.

ipmctl show -a -region

Shows all attributes for the specified persistent memory region.

ipmctl show -a -region 1

Limitations

In order to successfully execute this command:

Return Data

The default behavior is to display a table with the default attributes listed below; applying options changes the output to a more detailed format.

ISetID

(Default) The region unique identifier. Also known as interleave set cookie.

PersistentMemoryType

(Default) A comma-separated list of the underlying types of persistent memory capacity in the region. One or more of:

  • AppDirect: App Direct capacity interleaved across two or more PMem modules that is fully mapped into the system physical address space.
  • AppDirectNotInterleaved: App Direct capacity wholly contained on a single PMem modules that is fully mapped into the system physical address space.
Capacity

(Default) Total usable capacity, both allocated and unallocated

FreeCapacity

(Default) Remaining usable capacity

SocketID

(Default) Socket ID to which the region belongs

HealthState

The rolled up health of the underlying PMem modules. One of:

  • Unknown: The region health cannot be determined.
  • Healthy: All underlying PMem module persistent memory capacity is available.
  • Pending: A new memory allocation goal has been created but not applied. Reboot or delete any existing memory allocation goals before creating namespaces on the region.
  • Error: There is an issue with some or all of the underlying PMem module capacity because the interleave set has failed. One of: + PMem module missing (serial number of PMem module from the Platform Config Data not found in the PMem module list) + PMem module not configured + Failure to retrieve AppDirect I/O structures from NFIT (system physical address missing) + Interleave set or PMem module region initialization failure (out of memory) + Locked: One or more of the of the underlying Pmem moduless are locked.
DimmID

A list of all the PMem modules that are part of this reg.
