Shows sensor data for one or more PMem modules

Synopsis

ipmctl show [OPTIONS] -sensor [SENSORS] [TARGETS]

Description

Shows sensor data for one or more PMem modules. This data includes PMem module health, temperatures, percentage remaining, up-time and more.

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.

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

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

  • AlarmThreshold
  • AlarmEnabled
  • ThrottlingStopThreshold
  • ThrottlingStartThreshold
  • ShutdownThreshold
  • MaxTemperature
ControllerTemperature

(Default) The current PMem module controller temperature in Celsius. Attributes include:

PercentageRemaining

(Default) Remaining PMem module’s life as a percentage value of factory expected life span. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
  • AlarmThreshold
  • AlarmEnabled
LatchedDirtyShutdownCount

(Default) The number of shutdowns without notification over the lifetime of the PMem module. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
UnlatchedDirtyShutdownCount

(Default) The number of shutdowns without notification over the lifetime of the PMem module. This counter is the same as LatchedDirtyShutdownCount except it will always be incremented on a dirty shutdown, even if Latch System Shutdown Status was not enabled. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
PowerOnTime

(Default) The total power-on time over the lifetime of the PMem module. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
UpTime

(Default) The total power-on time since the last power cycle of the PMem module. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
PowerCycles

(Default) The number of power cycles over the lifetime of the PMem module. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue
FwErrorCount

(Default) The total number of firmware error log entries. Attributes include:

  • DimmID
  • Type
  • CurrentValue

Targets

-dimm [DimmIDs]

Restricts output to the sensors on specific PMem modules by supplying the DIMM target and one or more comma separated PMem module identifiers. The default is to display sensors for all manageable PMem modules.

Examples

Gets all sensor information for all PMem modules.

ipmctl show -sensor

Shows the media temperature sensor for the specified PMem module.

ipmctl show -sensor MediaTemperature -dimm 0x0001

Limitations

In order to successfully execute this command:

Return Data

This command displays a table with a row for each sensor on each PMem module. Applying a specific PMem module or sensor type target limits the number of rows. Applying options can be used to expand or restrict the output.

Note

Supported thresholds for a given sensor are listed as a part of the return data when using the -all or -display flag. Only the alarm threshold is settable.

DimmID

(Default) The PMem module identifier

Type

(Default) The sensor type. Refer to the sensor table above.

CurrentValue

(Default) The current reading followed by the units of measurement (e.g., 57 °C or 25%)

AlarmThreshold

The threshold value at which an alarm for the respective sensor will be triggered.

AlarmEnabled

Current state of the alarm threshold, where applicable. One of:

  • 0: Disabled
  • 1: Enabled
  • N/A
ThrottlingStopThreshold

The threshold value at which firmware will stop throttling to reduce overall thermals and keep the PMem module within safe operating temperatures.

ThrottlingStartThreshold

The threshold value at which firmware will start throttling to reduce overall thermals and keep the PMem module within safe operating temperatures.

ShutdownThreshold

The threshold value at which device shutdown will occur.

MaxTemperature

The highest temperature reported in degrees Celsius for a given media or controller sensor. This value is persistent through Power Loss and is read-only.
