DESCRIPTION

       Create a transport connection to a remote system (specified by --traddr and --trsvcid) and
       create a NVMe over Fabrics controller for the NVMe subsystem specified by the --nqn
       option.

OPTIONS

       -t <trtype>, --transport=<trtype>
           This field specifies the network fabric being used for a NVMe-over-Fabrics network.
           Current string values include:

           ┌──────┬────────────────────────────────┐
           │Value │ Definition                     │
           ├──────┼────────────────────────────────┤
           │rdma  │ The network fabric is an rdma  │
           │      │ network (RoCE, iWARP,          │
           │      │ Infiniband, basic rdma, etc)   │
           ├──────┼────────────────────────────────┤
           │fc    │ WIP The network fabric is a    │
           │      │ Fibre Channel network.         │
           ├──────┼────────────────────────────────┤

           │      │ target on the local host       │
           └──────┴────────────────────────────────┘

       -n <subnqn>, --nqn <subnqn>
           This field specifies the name for the NVMe subsystem to connect to.

       -a <traddr>, --traddr=<traddr>
           This field specifies the network address of the Controller. For transports using IP
           addressing (e.g. rdma) this should be an IP-based address (ex. IPv4).

       -s <trsvcid>, --trsvcid=<trsvcid>
           This field specifies the transport service id. For transports using IP addressing
           (e.g. rdma) this field is the port number. By default, the IP port number for the RDMA
           transport is 4420.

       -w <traddr>, --host-traddr=<traddr>
           This field specifies the network address used on the host to connect to the
           Controller.

       -q <hostnqn>, --hostnqn=<hostnqn>
           Overrides the default Host NQN that identifies the NVMe Host. If this option is not
           specified, the default is read from /etc/nvme/hostnqn first. If that does not exist,
           the autogenerated NQN value from the NVMe Host kernel module is used next. The Host
           NQN uniquely identifies the NVMe Host.

       -i <#>, --nr-io-queues=<#>
           Overrides the default number of I/O queues create by the driver.

       -W <#>, --nr-write-queues=<#>
           Adds additional queues that will be used for write I/O.

       -P <#>, --nr-poll-queues=<#>
           Adds additional queues that will be used for polling latency sensitive I/O.

       -Q <#>, --queue-size=<#>
           Overrides the default number of elements in the I/O queues created by the driver.

       -k <#>, --keep-alive-tmo=<#>
           Overrides the default keep alive timeout (in seconds).

       -c <#>, --reconnect-delay=<#>
           Overrides the default delay (in seconds) before reconnect is attempted after a connect
           loss.

       -l <#>, --ctrl-loss-tmo=<#>
           Overrides the default controller loss timeout period (in seconds).

EXAMPLES

       ·   Connect to a subsystem named nqn.2014-08.com.example:nvme:nvm-subsystem-sn-d78432 on
           the IP4 address 192.168.1.3. Port 4420 is used by default:

               # nvme connect --transport=rdma --traddr=192.168.1.3 \
               --nqn=nqn.2014-08.com.example:nvme:nvm-subsystem-sn-d78432
