       smp_rep_phy_event - invoke REPORT PHY EVENT SMP function


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


       Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT PHY EVENT function request to  an  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.

       Reports zero or more phy event descriptors. Each descriptor contains a phy event source, a
       phy  event  (i.e.  a  count)  and  a peak value detector theshold.  At least one phy event
       should be maintained for each phy.


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

       -d, --desc
              precede each phy event descriptor with  a  line  announcing  its  descriptor  index
              number. Index numbers start at 1.

       -e, --enumerate
              enumerate  all  of  the  known Phy Event Source names, one per line preceded by its
              value in hex. Ignores SMP_DEVICE if it  is  given;  most  other  options  are  also
              ignored. Exits after displaying the names.

       -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

       -l, --long
              prefix  each  phy  event  source  string  with  its numeric identifier in hex.  For
              example: "[0x1]: Invalid word count: 23"

       -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.


       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 EVENT function was introduced in SAS-2 .
