smp_rep_exp_route_tbl - invoke REPORT EXPANDER ROUTE TABLE LIST SMP function


smp_rep_exp_route_tbl [--brief] [--help] [--hex] [--index=IN] [--interface=PARAMS] [--num=NUM] [--phy=ID] [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


Sends a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT EXPANDER ROUTE TABLE LIST request function to a SMP target and decodes or outputs the response. The SMP target is identified by the SMP_DEVICE and the SAS_ADDR. Depending on the interface, the SAS_ADDR may be deduced from the SMP_DEVICE. With one interface there is one SMP_DEVICE per machine so the SMP_DEVICE[,N] syntax is needed to differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple present.


Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
-b, --brief
 reduce the decoded response output.
-h, --help output the usage message then exit.
-H, --hex output the response in hexadecimal.
-i, --index=IN
 IN is the starting routed SAS address index. The default value is 0.
-I, --interface=PARAMS
 interface specific parameters. In this case "interface" refers to the path through the operating system to the SMP initiator. See the smp_utils man page for more information.
-n, --num=NUM
 maximum number of descriptors fetch (default is 1). Note that maximum SMP frame size is 1032 bytes (including a trailing 4 byte CRC) which may limit the number of descriptors that can be fetched to 62.
-p, --phy=ID
 starting phy identifier. ID should be one of 0 (the default), 48 or 96.
-r, --raw send the response to stdout in binary. All error messages are sent to stderr.
-s, --sa=SAS_ADDR
 specifies the SAS address of the SMP target device. Typically this is an expander. This option may not be needed if the SMP_DEVICE has the target’s SAS address within it. The SAS_ADDR is in decimal but most SAS addresses are shown in hexadecimal. To give a number in hexadecimal either prefix it with ’0x’ or put a trailing ’h’ on it.
-v, --verbose
 increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple times
-V, --version
 print the version string and then exit.


The SMP REPORT EXPANDER ROUTE TABLE LIST function was introduced in SAS-2 .
