Synopsis

nvme lnvm-create [--device-name=<DEVICE> | -d <DEVICE>]
                        [--target-name=<TARGET> | -n <TARGET>]
                        [--target-type=<TARGETTYPE> | -t <TARGETTYPE>]
                        [--lun-begin <NUM> | -b <NUM>]
                        [--lun-end <NUM> | -e <NUM>]

Description

Instantiate a target on top of a LightNVM enabled device. This exposes the physical for the user to use.

The target name is the name of which the media is exposed as in /dev/<targetname>

The target type is the target to be instantiated. Typically pblk or rrpc.

LUN begin and end defines the range of LUNs to use for a target instantiation.

Options

--device-name=<DEVICE>, -d <DEVICE>
Device name to initialize.
--target-name=<TARGET>, -n <TARGET>
Target name of the device to initialize. For example: target0.
--target-type=<TARGETTYPE>, -t <TARGETTYPE>
Target type of the device to use. For example: pblk
--lun-begin <NUM>, -b <NUM>
Begin LUN id offset to use for target
--lun-end <NUM>, -e <NUM>
End LUN id offset to use for target

Examples

· Initialize nvme0n1 with pblk target with 64 LUNs.

# nvme lnvm-create -d nvme0n1 -t pblk -n target0 -b 0 -e 63
