ethextractmissinglinks - Man Page

Name

ethextractmissinglinks

Produces a CSV file listing all or some of the links in the fabric. ethextractmissinglinks is a front end to the ethreport tool that generates a report listing all or some of the links that are present in the supplied topology file, but are missing in the fabric. The output from this tool can be imported into a spreadsheet or parsed by other scripts.

Syntax

ethextractmissinglinks [-T topology_input] [-o report]
[ethreport  options]

Options

--help

Produces full help text.

-T/--topology topology_input

Specifies the topology file to verify against. Default is /etc/eth-tools/topology.0:0.xml

-o/--output report

Specifies the report type for output. Refer to Report Types for details.

ethreport options

The following options are passed to ethreport. This subset is considered typical and useful for this command.

-X/--infile snapshot_input Generates a report using the data in the snapshot_input file. snapshot_input must have been generated during a previous -o snapshot run. '-' may be used as the snapshot_input to specify stdin.

-E/--eth config_file Specifies the Intel Ethernet configuration file. Default is /etc/eth-tools/mgt_config.xml file.

-F/--focus point Specifies the focus area for report. Used to limit scope of report. Refer to Point Syntax for details.

Report Types

verifylinks

Compares fabric (or snapshot) links to supplied topology and identifies differences and omissions.

verifyextlinks

Compares fabric (or snapshot) links to supplied topology and identifies differences and omissions. Limits analysis to links external to systems.

verifyniclinks

Compares fabric (or snapshot) links to supplied topology and identify differences and omissions. Limits analysis to links to NICs.

verifyislinks

Compares fabric (or snapshot) links to supplied topology and identify differences and omissions. Limits analysis to inter-switch links.

verifyextislinks

Compares fabric (or snapshot) links to supplied topology and identify differences and omissions. Limits analysis to inter-switch links external to systems.

verifyall

Returns verifynics, verifysws, and verifylinks reports.
