sminfo Command

Queries the InfiniBand SMInfo attribute.


sminfo [-d][-e] -s state -p priority -a activity [-D][-G][-h][-V][-C ca_name][-P ca_port][-t timeout] smlid|smdr_path



This InfiniBand command conducts a query of the Subnet Manager and outputs the information in a human readable format. The target Subnet Manager is identified in the local port information, or it is specified by the smlid or smdr_path.

Note - Using the sminfo command for other than simple queries might fault the target Subnet Manager.


The following table describes the options to the sminfo 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.
Displays send and receive errors.
Sets the Subnet Manager state:
  • 0 – Not active.

  • 1 – Discovering.

  • 2 – Standby.

  • 3 – Master.

Sets the priority, (0–13).
