ethextractstat - Man Page

Name

ethextractstat

Performs an error analysis of a fabric and provides augmented information from a topology_file. The report provides cable information as well as symbol error counts.

ethextractstat generates a detailed ethreport errors report that also has a topology file (see ethreport for more information about topology files). The report is piped to ethxmlextract which extracts values for Link, Cable and Port. (The port element names are context-sensitive.) Note that ethxmlextract generates two extraction records for each link (one for each port on the link); therefore, ethextractstat merges the two records into a single record and removes redundant link and cable information.

ethextractstat contains a while read loop that reads the CSV line-by-line, uses cut to remove redundant information, and outputs the data on a common line.

Syntax

ethextractstat topology_file [ethreport  options]

Options

--help

Produces full help text.

topology_file

Specifies topology_file to use.

ethreport options

The following options are passed to ethreport. This subset is considered typical and useful for this command. By design, the tool ignores -o/--output report option.

-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.

-A/--allports Gets PortInfo for down switch ports.

-c/--config file Specifies the error thresholds configuration file. Default is /etc/eth-tools/ethmon.conf file.

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

-L/--limit Limits operation to exact specified focus with -F for port error counters check (-o errors). Normally, the neighbor of each selected port is also checked. Does not affect other reports.

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

The portion of the script that calls ethreport and ethxmlextract follows:

ethreport -x -Q -d 10 -o errors -T "$@" | ethxmlextract -H -d \; \

-e Link:id -e Rate -e LinkDetails -e CableLength \

-e CableLabel -e CableDetails -e Port.NodeDesc -e Port.PortNum
