Description

Send a NVMe-MI Send command to the specified device, return results.

The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0) or block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1).

On success it returns 0, error code otherwise.

Options

-O <opcode>, --opcode=<opcode>

The NVMe-MI opcode to send to the device in the command

-n <nsid>, --namespace-id=<nsid>

The value for the ns-id in the command.

-l <data-len>, --data-len=<data-len>

The data length for the buffer used for this command.

-m <nmimt>, --nmimt=<nmimt>

The value for the NVMe-MI message type in the command.

-0 <nmd0>, --nmd0=<nmd0>

The value for the NVMe management request dword 0 in the command.

-1 <nmd1>, --nmd1=<nmd1>

The value for the NVMe management request dword 1 in the command.

-i <file>, --input-file=<file>

If the command is a data-out (write) command, use this file to fill the buffer sent to the device. If no file is given, assumed to use STDIN.

-o <fmt>, --output-format=<fmt>

Set the reporting format to normal, json or binary. Only one output format can be used at a time.

-v, ā€‰--verbose

Increase the information detail in the output.
