ibtracert Command

Traces the InfiniBand path.


ibtracert [-d][-D][-G][-h][-m mlid][-s smlid][-v][-V][-C ca_name][-P ca_port][-t timeout][lid|dr_path|guid [startlid [endlid]]]



This InfiniBand command uses SMPs to trace the path from a source GID or LID to a destination GID or LID. Each responding hop in the path is displayed. The -m option enables multicast path tracing between source and destination nodes.


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

Sets the debug level. Can be used several times to increase the debug level.
Uses the directed path address. The path is a comma delimited sequence of out ports.
Uses the port GUID address.
Provides help.
Shows the multicast trace of the specified MLID.
Uses smlid as the target LID for Subnet Manager or 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.

The following example shows how to display the path from LID 25 to LID 24 with the ibtracert command.

# ibtracert 25 24
From switch {0x0021283a8620b0f0} portnum 0 lid 25-25 "Sun DCS 72 QDR FC switch o4nm2-72p-2"
[1] -> switch port {0x0021283a8620b0c0}[9] lid 22-22 "Sun DCS 72 QDR switch 1.2(LC)"
[2] -> switch port {0x0021283a8620b0e0}[8] lid 24-24 "Sun DCS 72 QDR switch 1.1(FC)"
To switch {0x0021283a8620b0e0} portnum 0 lid 24-24 "Sun DCS 72 QDR switch 1.1(FC)"
