ibmgmtd (8)

Name

ibmgmtd - InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter management daemon

Synopsis

/sbin/ibmgmtd
svc:/network/ib/ib-management:default

Description

ibmgmtd is a system daemon that handles administrative events for InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters. It is controlled through the service management facility (SMF) service instance:

svc:/network/ib/ib-management:default

The ibmgmtd daemon is started automatically by the SMF service and should not be invoked directly. It does not constitute an administrative or a programming interface. Use the following command to start ibmgmtd:

svcadm enable svc:/network/ib/ib-management:default

Use the following command to stop ibmgmtd:

svcadm disable svc:/network/ib/ib-management:default

The administrative interface for managing InfiniBand HCA interfaces is through ibadm(8).

System Configuration (SC) Profile

The InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter configuration may be specified in a System Configuration Profile for use in an automated installation. In the example excerpt below, the hermon0 property group is used to switch on I/O Virtualization (iov) with a limit of 5 VHCAs. The hermon0-vhca0 property group adds a VHCA with default properties. Note that the "." in "hermon0.vhca0" name has been replaced with a "-". The hermon0-vhca0-port1 group specifies which pkeys to allow on port 1 of the VHCA. Port 2 which is not specified will use the default pkeys for the VHCA.

       <instance name='default' enabled='true'>
