ibdmsh IB DATA MODEL - Extentended TCL shell
ibdmsh is a TCL shell extended with interface for the IB data model. To use this shell you will write TCL code that directly access the IB data model objects and functions. The following sub sections provide detailed definition for those objects and API.
Node Types The following constants are used by the node object type field [ Constant : int ] $IB_UNKNOWN_NODE_TYPE = IB_UNKNOWN_NODE_TYPE [ Constant : int ] $IB_SW_NODE = IB_SW_NODE [ Constant : int ] $IB_CA_NODE = IB_CA_NODE Log Verbosity Flags The following constants are used as argument bits for the global variable $FabricUtilsVerboseLevel [ Constant : int ] $FABU_LOG_NONE = 0x0 [ Constant : int ] $FABU_LOG_ERROR = 0x1 [ Constant : int ] $FABU_LOG_INFO = 0x2 [ Constant : int ] $FABU_LOG_VERBOSE = 0x4
Log level: set to FABU_LOG* values [ Global : int ] $FabricUtilsVerboseLevel
This section decribes the various object types exposed by IBDM. IBDM exposes some of its internal objects. The objects identifiers returned by the various function calls are formatted according to the following rules: Fabric: fabric:<idx> System: system:<fab idx>:<sys name> SysPort: sysport:<fab idx>:<sys name>:<port name> Node: node:<fab idx>:<node name> Port: port:<fab idx>:<node name>/<port num> IBDM Objects are standard Swig-Tcl objects. As such they have two flavors for their usage: Variables, Objects. Variables/Pointers: For each object attribute a "get" and "set" methods are provided. The format of the methods is: <class>_<attribute>_<get⎪set>. The "set" method is only available for read/write attributes. Example: set nodes [ibdm_get_nodes] set node [lindex $nodes 0] IBNode_numPorts_get $node Objects: Given an object pointer one can convert it to a Tcl "Object" using the following command: <class> <obj_name> -this <obj pointer> Once declared the <obj-name> can be used in conjunction to with the standard "configure" and "cget" commands. Example (following the previous one): IBFabric VaTech -this $fabric VaTech cget -NodeByName To delete an object symbol (and enable its mapping to another pointer) use: rename <obj name> "" for example: rename VaTech "" class IBPort The following are the different fields and methods of the IB Port class which describes an IB device (chip) physical port.
