NAME

       smp_rep_phy_event - invoke REPORT PHY EVENT SMP function

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       Sends a SAS Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT PHY EVENT 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.

OPTIONS

       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
              information.

       -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
              it.

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

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

NOTES

       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.

CONFORMING TO

       The SMP REPORT PHY EVENT function was introduced in SAS-2 .
