IBROUTE —

Query Infiniband Switch Forwarding Tables

Synopsis

ibroute [options] [<dest dr_path|lid|guid> [<startlid> [<endlid>]]]

Description

ibroute uses SMPs to display the forwarding tables (unicast (LinearForwardingTable or LFT) or multicast (MulticastForwardingTable or MFT)) for the specified switch LID and the optional lid (mlid) range. The default range is all valid entries in the range 1...FDBTop.

Options

-a, --all
show all lids in range, even invalid entries
-n, --no_dests
do not try to resolve destinations
-M, --Multicast
show multicast forwarding tables In this case, the range parameters are specifying the mlid range.

Addressing Flags

-D, --Direct The address specified is a directed route

Examples:
   [options] -D [options] "0"          # self port
   [options] -D [options] "0,1,2,1,4"  # out via port 1, then 2, ...

   (Note the second number in the path specified must match the port being
   used.  This can be specified using the port selection flag '-P' or the
   port found through the automatic selection process.)

-G, --Guid The address specified is a Port GUID

-L, --Lid The address specified is a LID

-s, --sm_port <smlid> use 'smlid' as the target lid for SA queries.

Port Selection flags

-C, --Ca <ca_name> use the specified ca_name.

-P, --Port <ca_port> use the specified ca_port.

Local port Selection

Multiple port/Multiple CA support: when no IB device or port is specified (see the "local umad parameters" below), the libibumad library selects the port to use by the following criteria:

1.
the first port that is ACTIVE.
2.

if not found, the first port that is UP (physical link up).

If a port and/or CA name is specified, the libibumad library attempts to fulfill the user request, and will fail if it is not possible.

For example:

ibaddr                 # use the first port (criteria #1 above)
ibaddr -C mthca1       # pick the best port from "mthca1" only.
ibaddr -P 2            # use the second (active/up) port from the first available IB device.
ibaddr -C mthca0 -P 2  # use the specified port only.

Debugging flags

-d
raise the IB debugging level. May be used several times (-ddd or -d -d -d).
-e
show send and receive errors (timeouts and others)

-h, --help show the usage message

-v, --verbose
increase the application verbosity level. May be used several times (-vv or -v -v -v)

-V, --version show the version info.

Configuration flags

-t, --timeout <timeout_ms> override the default timeout for the solicited mads.

-y, --m_key <key>
use the specified M_key for requests. If non-numeric value (like 'x') is specified then a value will be prompted for.

--node-name-map <node-name-map> Specify a node name map.

This file maps GUIDs to more user friendly names. See Files section.

--config, -z <config_file> Specify alternate config file.

Default: /etc/infiniband-diags/ibdiag.conf

Files

Config File

/etc/infiniband-diags/ibdiag.conf

A global config file is provided to set some of the common options for all tools. See supplied config file for details.

Node Name Map File Format

The node name map is used to specify user friendly names for nodes in the output. GUIDs are used to perform the lookup.

This functionality is provided by the opensm-libs package. See opensm(8) for the file location for your installation.

Generically:

# comment
<guid> "<name>"
