ibsysstat Command

Displays system status of an InfiniBand address.


ibsysstat [-d][-e][-G][-h][-s smlid][-v][-V][-C ca_name][-P ca_port][-t timeout][-o oui][-S] lid|guid [op]



This InfiniBand command uses vendor supplied management datagrams to validate connectivity between InfiniBand nodes and return other information about the node. The command is a client-server, in that a remote node is configured as a server, while a local node performs as a client.

The command is first run locally on the server. The command is then run again locally on the client, pointing to the LID of the server. The ping repeats every second on the server, until you type the Ctrl-C key combination to exit the command.


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

Sets the debug level. Can be used several times to increase the debug level.
Displays send and receive errors.
Uses the port GUID address.
Provides help.
Uses smlid as the target LID for Subnet Manager/Subnet Administrator queries.
Provides verbose output.
Displays the version information.
Uses the specified channel adapter name.
Uses the specified channel adapter port.
Overrides the default timeout.
Uses specified OUI number to multiplex vendor management datagrams.
Starts in server mode.

The following example shows how to retrieve system information about a remote node server from a local node client with the ibsysstat command. First configure the remote node server:

# ibsysstat -S
<CTRL-C to exit server>

Then run the command on the local node client:

# ibsysstat 1 ping
sysstat ping succeeded
# ibsysstat 1 host
# ibsysstat 1 cpu
