NAMEsmp_read_gpio - invoke READ GPIO REGISTER SMP function
SYNOPSISsmp_read_gpio [--count=CO] [--help] [--hex] [--index=IN] [--interface=PARAMS] [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--type=TY] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]
Sends a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) READ GPIO REGISTER request to a SMP target. 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.
This function is defined in SFF-8485 ( see www.sffcommittee.com ) together with its corresponding WRITE GPIO REGISTER SMP function. The other SMP functions are defined in SAS documents at www.t10.org . SFF-8485 defines a curious device called a "virtual SMP port" that lives in a host bus adapter (HBA) and allows SMP to manipulate the sideband signals on wide internal cables. To stop other initiators in a multi-initiator domain from accessing those sideband signals, the virtual SMP (target) port is not indicated in a DISCOVER response.
OPTIONSMandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.
- -c, --count=CO
- where CO is the register count. This is the number of (4 byte) registers to request. The default value is 1.
- -h, --help
- output the usage message then exit.
- -H, --hex
- output the response in hexadecimal.
- -i, --index=IN
- where IN is the register index. This value is origin zero and its default value is 0. If the request succeeds, then --count=CO registers starting from --index=IN of the given --type=TY should be in the response.
- -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.
- -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.
- -t, --type=TY
- where TY is the register type. The default value is 0 (GPIO_CFG). If the request succeeds, then --count=CO registers starting from --index=IN of the given --type=TY should be in the response.
- -v, --verbose
- increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple times
- -V, --version
- print the version string and then exit.
CONFORMING TOThe SMP READ GPIO REGISTER function is defined in SFF-8485 (see www.sffcommittee.com ) together with its corresponding WRITE GPIO REGISTER SMP function.
