ibcheckerrors Command

Validates InfiniBand fabric and report errors.


ibcheckerrors [-h][-b][-v][-N][topology|-C ca_name -P ca_port -t timeout]



This InfiniBand command is a script that uses the topology file created by the ibnetdiscover command to scan the InfiniBand fabric to validate the connectivity and report errors from the port counters.


The following table describes the options to the ibcheckerrors command and their purposes:

Provides help.
Enables brief mode. Reduced output is only if errors are present. Does not identify the errors.
Provides verbose output.
Uses mono mode instead of color mode.
Uses the specified channel adapter name.
Uses the specified channel adapter port.
Overrides the default timeout.

The following example shows how to check error counters for all LIDs in the InfiniBand fabric with the ibcheckerrors command.

Note - The output in the example is a portion of the full output.

# ibcheckerrors 
#warn: counter SymbolErrors = 3121      (threshold 10) lid 25 port 255
#warn: counter RcvSwRelayErrors = 48545         (threshold 100) lid 25 port 255

## Summary: 6 nodes checked, 0 bad nodes found
##          142 ports checked, 3 ports have errors beyond threshold
