NAME

       ledctl - Intel(R) LED control application for a storage enclosures.

SYNOPSIS

       ledctl [OPTIONS] pattern_name=list_of_devices ...

DESCRIPTION

       The ledctl is an user space application designed to control LEDs
       associated with each slot in an enclosure or a drive bay. The LEDs of
       devices listed in list_of_devices are set to the given pattern
       pattern_name and all other LEDs are turned off.  User must have root
       privileges to use this application.

       There are two types of systems: 2-LEDs systems (Activity LED, Status
       LED) and 3-LEDs systems (Activity LED, Locate LED, Fail LED).  The
       ledctl application uses SGPIO and SES-2 protocol to control LEDs.  The
       program implements IBPI patterns of SFF-8489 specification for SGPIO.
       Please note some enclosures do not stick close to SFF-8489
       specification.  It might happen that enclosure's processor will accept
       an IBPI pattern but it will blink the LEDs at variance with SFF-8489
       specification or it has limited number of patterns supported.

       LED management (AHCI) and SAF-TE protocols are not supported.

       The ledctl application has been verified to work with Intel(R) storage
       controllers (i.e. Intel(R) AHCI controller and Intel(R) SAS
       controller).  The application might work with storage controllers of
       other vendors (especially SCSI/SAS controllers). However, storage
       controllers of other vendors have not been tested.

       The ledmon application has the highest priority when accessing LEDs.
       It means that some patterns set by ledctl may have no effect if ledmon
       is running (except Locate pattern).

       The ledctl application is a part of Intel(R) Enclosure LED Utilities.

   Pattern Names
       The ledctl application accepts the following names for pattern_name
       argument according to SFF-8489 specification.

   List of Devices
       The application accepts a list of devices in two formats. The first
       format is a list with comma separated elements. The second format is
       a list in curly braces and elements are separated by space. See
       examples section bellow for details.

       A device is a path to file in /dev directory or in /sys/block
       directory.  It may identify a block device, a RAID device or a
       container device.  In case of a RAID device or a container device a
       state will be set for all block devices associated, respectively.

       The LEDs of devices listed in list_of_devices are set to the given
       pattern pattern_name and all other LEDs are turned off.

OPTIONS

       -c or --config=path
               Sets a path to local configuration file. If this option is
               specified the global configuration file and user configuration
               file has no effect.

       -l or --log=path
               Sets a path to local log file. If this option is specified the
               global log file /var/log/ledctl.log is not used.

       -h or --help
               Prints this text out and exits.

       -v or --version
               Displays version of ledctl and information about the license
               and exits.

FILES

       /var/log/ledctl.log
               Global log file, used by all instances of ledctl application.
               To force logging to user defined file use -l option switch.

       ~/.ledctl
               User configuration file, shared between ledmon and all ledctl
               application instances.

       /etc/ledcfg.conf
               Global configuration file, shared between ledmon and all ledctl
               application instances.

EXAMPLES

       The following example illustrates how to locate a single block device.

           ledctl locate=/dev/sda

       The following example illustrates how to turn Locate LED off for the
       same block device.

           ledctl locate_off=/dev/sda

       The following example illustrates how to locate disks of a RAID device
       and how to set rebuild pattern for two block devices at the same time.
       This example uses both formats of device list.

            ledctl locate=/dev/md127 rebuild={ /sys/block/sd[a-b] }

       The following example illustrates how to turn Status LED and Failure
       LED off for the given device(s).

            ledctl off={ /dev/sda /dev/sdb }

       The following example illustrates how to locate a three block devices.
       This example uses the first format of device list.

            ledctl locate=/dev/sda,/dev/sdb,/dev/sdc
