       osmtest is a test  program  to  validate  InfiniBand  subnet  manager  and  administration

       Default is to run all flows with the exception of the QoS flow.

       osmtest provides a test suite for opensm.

       osmtest has the following capabilities and testing flows:

       It creates an inventory file of all available Nodes, Ports, and PathRecords, including all
       their fields.  It verifies the existing inventory, with all the object fields, and matches
       it to a pre-saved one.  A Multicast Compliancy test.  An Event Forwarding test.  A Service
       Record registration test.  An RMPP stress test.  A Small SA Queries stress test.

       It is recommended that after installing opensm, the user should  run  "osmtest  -f  c"  to
       generate the inventory file, and immediately afterwards run "osmtest -f a" to test OpenSM.

       Another  recommendation for osmtest usage is to create the inventory when the IB fabric is
       stable, and occasionally run "osmtest -v" to verify that nothing has changed.


       -f, --flow
              This option directs osmtest to run a specific flow:
               FLOW  DESCRIPTION
               c = create an inventory file with all nodes, ports and paths
               a = run all validation tests (expecting an input inventory)
               v = only validate the given inventory file
               s = run service registration, deregistration, and lease test
               e = run event forwarding test
               f = flood the SA with queries according to the stress mode
               m = multicast flow
               q = QoS info: dump VLArb and SLtoVL tables
               t = run trap 64/65 flow (this flow requires running of external tool)
               (default is all flows except QoS)

       -w, --wait
              This option specifies the wait time for trap 64/65 in seconds It is used only  when
              running -f t - the trap 64/65 flow (default to 10 sec)

       -d, --debug
              This  option specifies a debug option.  These options are not normally needed.  The
              number following -d selects the debug option to enable as follows:

               OPT   Description
               ---    -----------------
               -d0  - Ignore other SM nodes
               -d1  - Force single threaded dispatching
               -d2  - Force log flushing after each log message
               -d3  - Disable multicast support
               -d4  - Use full world path record queries

       -m, --max_lid
              This option specifies the maximal LID number to be searched  for  during  inventory
              file build (default to 100)

       -g, --guid
              This  option  specifies  the  local  port GUID value with which OpenSM should bind.
              OpenSM may be bound to 1 port at a time.  If GUID given is  0,  OpenSM  displays  a
              list  of  possible port GUIDs and waits for user input.  Without -g, OpenSM trys to
              use the default port.

       -p, --port
              This option displays a menu of possible local port GUID values with  which  osmtest
              could bind

       -i, --inventory
              This option specifies the name of the inventory file.  Normally, osmtest expects to
              find an inventory file,  which  osmtest  uses  to  validate  real-time  information
              received from the SA during testing If -i is not specified, osmtest defaults to the
              file ┬┤osmtest.dat┬┤ See -f c option for related information

       -s, --stress
              This option runs the specified stress test instead of the normal test suite  Stress
              test options are as follows:

               OPT    Description
               ---    -----------------
               -s1  - Single-MAD (RMPP) response SA queries
               -s2  - Multi-MAD (RMPP) response SA queries
               -s3  - Multi-MAD (RMPP) Path Record SA queries
               -s4  - Single-MAD (non RMPP) get Path Record SA queries

              Without -s, stress testing is not performed

       -M, --Multicast_Mode
              This option specify length of Multicast test:

               OPT    Description
               ---    -----------------
               -M1  - Short Multicast Flow (default) - single mode
               -M2  - Short Multicast Flow - multiple mode
               -M3  - Long Multicast Flow - single mode
               -M4  - Long Multicast Flow - multiple mode

              Single mode - Osmtest is tested alone, with no other apps that interact with OpenSM

              Multiple mode - Could be run with other apps using  MC  with  OpenSM.  Without  -M,
              default flow testing is performed

       -t, --timeout
              This  option  specifies  the  time  in  milliseconds used for transaction timeouts.
              Specifying -t 0 disables timeouts.  Without -t, OpenSM defaults to a timeout  value
              of 200 milliseconds.

       -l, --log_file
              This  option  defines  the  log  to  be the given file.  By default the log goes to

       -v, --verbose
              This option increases the log verbosity level.  The  -v  option  may  be  specified
              multiple  times  to  further  increase the verbosity level.  See the -vf option for
              more information about.  log verbosity.

       -V     This option sets the maximum verbosity level and forces log flushing.   The  -V  is
              equivalent to '-vf 0xFF -d 2'.  See the -vf option for more information about.  log

       -vf    This option sets the log verbosity level.  A flags field must follow the -D option.
              A bit set/clear in the flags enables/disables a specific log level as follows:

               BIT    LOG LEVEL ENABLED
               ----   -----------------
               0x01 - ERROR (error messages)
               0x02 - INFO (basic messages, low volume)
               0x04 - VERBOSE (interesting stuff, moderate volume)
               0x08 - DEBUG (diagnostic, high volume)
               0x10 - FUNCS (function entry/exit, very high volume)
               0x20 - FRAMES (dumps all SMP and GMP frames)
               0x40 - ROUTING (dump FDB routing information)
               0x80 - currently unused.

              Without  -vf,  osmtest defaults to ERROR + INFO (0x3) Specifying -vf 0 disables all
              messages Specifying -vf 0xFF enables all messages (see -V)  High  verbosity  levels
              may require increasing the transaction timeout with the -t option

       -h, --help
              Display this usage info then exit.
