ethreport - Man Page

Name

ethreport

Provides powerful fabric analysis and reporting capabilities. Must be run on a host connected to the Intel(R) Ethernet Fabric with the Intel(R) Ethernet Fabric Suite FastFabric Toolset installed.

Syntax

ethreport  [-v][-q] [--timeout] [-o  report]
[-d  detail] [-N] [-x] [-X  snapshot_input] [-T  topology_input]
[-A] [-c  file] [-L] [-F  point] [-Q] [-E  file]

Options

--help

Produces full help text.

-v/--verbose

Returns verbose output.

-q/--quiet

Disables progress reports.

--timeout

Specifies the timeout (wait time for response) in ms. Default is 1000 ms.

-o/--output report

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

-d/--detail level

Specifies the level of detail 0-n for output. Default is 2.

-N/--noname

Omits node.

-x/--xml

Produces output in XML.

-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.

-T/--topology topology_input

Uses topology_input file to augment and verify fabric information. When used, various reports can be augmented with information not available electronically. '-' may be used 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/--ethconfig 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.

Limits output to reflect a subsection of the fabric. May not work with all reports. (For example, the verify* reports may ignore the option or not generate useful results.)

-Q/--quietfocus

Excludes focus description from report.
