       smp_rep_phy_err_log - invoke REPORT PHY ERROR LOG SMP function


       smp_rep_phy_err_log    [--help]    [--hex]    [--interface=PARAMS]    [--phy=ID]   [--raw]
       [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--verbose] [--version] [--zero] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT PHY ERROR  LOG  function  request  to  a  SMP
       target.  The SMP target is identified by the SMP_DEVICE and the SAS_ADDR. Depending on the
       interface, the SAS_ADDR may be  deduced  from  the  SMP_DEVICE.  The  mpt  interface  uses
       SMP_DEVICE  to  identify  a  HBA  (an  SMP  initiator)  and  needs  the  additional  ,N to
       differentiate between HBAs if there are multiple present.


       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.

       -h, --help
              output the usage message then exit.

       -H, --hex
              output the response (less the CRC field) in hexadecimal.

       -I, --interface=PARAMS
              interface specific parameters. In this case "interface" refers to the path  through
              the  operating  system  to  the  SMP initiator. See the smp_utils man page for more

       -p, --phy=ID
              phy identifier. ID is a value between 0 and 254. Default is 0.

       -r, --raw
              send the response (less the CRC field) to stdout in binary. All error messages  are
              sent to stderr.

       -s, --sa=SAS_ADDR
              specifies  the SAS address of the SMP target device. Typically this is an expander.
              This option may not be needed if the SMP_DEVICE has the target's SAS address within
              it.  The SAS_ADDR is in decimal but most SAS addresses are shown in hexadecimal. To
              give a number in hexadecimal either prefix it with '0x' or put a  trailing  'h'  on

       -v, --verbose
              increase the verbosity of the output. Can be used multiple times

       -V, --version
              print the version string and then exit.

       -z, --zero
              zero the Allocated Response Length field in the request. This option also zeros the
              Request  Length  field  in  the  request.  This  is  required  for  strict  SAS-1.1
              compliance.  However  this  option should not be given in SAS-2 and later; if it is
              given an abridged response may result.


       Similar information is maintained for SAS SSP target phys (e.g. on a SAS disk). It can  be
       obtained from the Protocol Specific Port log page with the sg_logs utility.

       Similar  information  may  be  obtained  for SAS initiator phys (e.g. on a SAS HBA). As an
       example  in  Linux  2.6.28  error   information   can   be   found   in   this   directory
       /sys/class/sas_phy/phy-4:0 (for the phy 0 in SCSI/SAS host 4).

       Similar  information  may be obtained for SATA device phys (e.g. on a SATA disk). If there
       is a SAT layer between OS and the SATA device then the sg_sat_phy_event utility can  fetch
       the information.


       The  SMP  REPORT  PHY  ERROR  LOG function was introduced in SAS-1 .  The "Expander change
       count" field was added in SAS-2 .
