.IX Title "IBDMCHK 1"
\&\fBIBDM \- Network Checker and Attributes Analyzer\fR
ibdmchk has two operation modes: design and verification.
ibdmchk [\-v][\-h][\-u][\-r <roots file>] \-t <topology file> \-n <\s-1SM\s0 Node>
  \-p <\s-1SM\s0 Port> [\-e] [\-l <lmc>]
ibdmchk [\-v][\-h][\-r <roots file>] [\-s <subnet file>] [\-f <fdb file>]
  [\-m <mcfdbs file> [\-l <lmc>] [\-u] [\-M] [\-a]
  [\-c <path sl file>] [\-d <sl2vl tables file>]
The Design mode is intended to be used before the cluster is built. It provides basic checks of the specified network as described by a topology file. After simulating the \s-1SM\s0 \s-1LID\s0 assignment and routing algorithms it provides reports of the (H)CA to (H)CA paths depth histogram and credit deadlock potential in the resulting routing scheme.
.IP "\-t|\-\-topo <topo file>"
.IX Item "-t|--topo <topo file>"
The \fBtopology file\fR specifying the network. See man \fBibdm-topology-file\fR
.IP "\-n|\-\-node <\s-1SM\s0 Node>"
.IX Item "-n|--node <SM Node>"
The name of the Subnet Manager node (syntax: <Topo\-File\-System>/U1)
.IP "\-p|\-\-port <\s-1SM\s0 Port>"
.IX Item "-p|--port <SM Port>"
The port number by which the \s-1SM\s0 nodes is attached to the fabric.
.IX Header "OPTIONS"
.IP "\-v|\-\-verbose"
.IX Item "-v|--verbose"
Verbsoe mode
.IP "\-h|\-\-help"
.IX Item "-h|--help"
Provides this help message
.IP "\-l|\-\-lmc <lmc>"
.IX Item "-l|--lmc <lmc>"
\&\s-1LMC\s0 value > 0 means assigning 2^lmc lids to each port.
.IP "\-e|\-\-enh"
.IX Item "-e|--enh"
Use enhanced routing algorithm when \s-1LMC\s0 > 0 and report the resulting paths correlation (using same system/node) histogram
.IP "\-r|\-\-roots <roots file> A file with all the roots node names (one on each line)."
.IX Item "-r|--roots <roots file> A file with all the roots node names (one on each line)."
After the cluster is built and OpenSM is run (using flag \-D 0x43) it reports the subnet and \s-1FDB\s0 tables into the files osm\-subnet.lst, osm.fdbs and osm.fdbs in /var/log/ (or subnet.lst, osm.fdbs and osm.mcfdbs into /tmp in older OpenSM versions). ibdiagnet is also producing the same files in its output directory.
Based on these files the utility checks all \s-1CA\s0 to \s-1CA\s0 connectivity. Further analysis for credit deadlock potential is performed and reported.
In case of an \s-1LMC\s0 > 0 it reports histograms for how many systems and nodes are common between the different paths for the same port pairs.
.IP "\-l|\-\-lmc <lmc>"
.IX Item "-l|--lmc <lmc>"
The \s-1LMC\s0 value used while running OpenSM. Mandatory if not the default 0.
.IX Header "OPTIONS"

.IP "\-s|\-\-subnet <file>"
.IX Item "-s|--subnet <file>"

.IP "\-f|\-\-fdb <file>"
.IX Item "-f|--fdb <file>"

.IP "\-m|\-\-mcfdb <file>"
.IX Item "-m|--mcfdb <file>"
OpenSM dump of Multicast \s-1LFDB\s0. Use \-D 0x41 to generate it (default is /var/log/osm.mcfdbs or /tmp/osm.mcfdbs).

.IP "\-d|\-\-slvl <file>"
.IX Item "-d|--slvl <file>"
\&\s-1SL2VL\s0 mapping of all switces.
Each line holds: swguid iport oport 0x(sl0)(sl1) 0x(sl2)(sl3)...
Used by the credit loop check to accuartly model \s-1SL/VL\s0 based routing.
.IP "\-r|\-\-roots <roots file>"
.IX Item "-r|--roots <roots file>"
A file holding all root nodes guids (one per line).
.IP "\-u|\-\-updn"
.IX Item "-u|--updn"
Use Up/Down based credit loop check algorithm instead of the generic one.
.IP "\-M|\-\-MFT"
.IX Item "-M|--MFT"
Include multicast routing in credit loops analysis.
.IP "\-a|\-\-all"
.IX Item "-a|--all"
Verify not only CA-CA paths but also \s-1SW\-SW\s0, CA-SW and \s-1SW\-CA\s0.
Both check for \s-1FDB\s0 path connectivity and also for credit loops.
