NAME
       ibdiscover.pl - annotate and compare InfiniBand topology


SYNOPSIS
       ibdiscover.pl


DESCRIPTION
       ibdiscover.pl  uses  a topology file create by ibnetdiscover and a dis-
       cover.map file which the network administrator creates which  indicates
       the  nodes  to  be  expected  and  a  ibdiscover.topo file which is the
       expected connectivity  and  produces  a  new  connectivity  file  (dis-
       cover.topo.new) and outputs the changes to stdout. The network adminis-
       trator can choose to replace the "old" topo file with the  new  one  or
       certain changes in.

       The syntax of the ibdiscover.map file is:

       <nodeGUID>|port|"Text  for  node"|<NodeDescription  from  ibnetdiscover
       format>

       e.g.

       8f10400410015|8|"ISR 6000"|# SW-6IB4 Voltaire port 0 lid 5

       8f10403960558|2|"HCA 1"|# MT23108 InfiniHost Mellanox Technologies

       The syntax of the old and new topo files  (ibdiscover.topo  and  ibdis-
       cover.topo.new) are:

       <LocalPort>|<LocalNodeGUID>|<RemotePort>|<RemoteNodeGUID>

       e.g.

       10|5442ba00003080|1|8f10400410015

       These topo files are produced by the ibdiscover.pl tool.
