Package ndctl

Manage "libnvdimm" subsystem devices (Non-volatile Memory)

https://github.com/pmem/ndctl

Utility library for managing the "libnvdimm" subsystem. The "libnvdimm"
subsystem defines a kernel device model and control message interface for
platform NVDIMM resources like those defined by the ACPI 6+ NFIT (NVDIMM
Firmware Interface Table).

Version: 79

General Commands

ndctl Manage "libnvdimm" subsystem devices (Non-volatile Memory)
ndctl-activate-firmware activate staged firmware on memory devices
ndctl-check-labels determine if the given dimms have a valid namespace index block
ndctl-check-namespace check namespace metadata consistency
ndctl-clear-errors clear all errors (badblocks) on the given namespace
ndctl-create-namespace provision or reconfigure a namespace
ndctl-destroy-namespace destroy the given namespace(s)
ndctl-disable-dimm disable one or more idle dimms
ndctl-disable-namespace disable the given namespace(s)
