       smp_rep_phy_event_list - invoke REPORT PHY EVENT LIST SMP function


       smp_rep_phy_event_list  [--desc]  [--enumerate]  [--force]  [--help]  [--hex] [--index=IN]
       [--interface=PARAMS] [--long] [--nonz]  [--raw]  [--sa=SAS_ADDR]  [--verbose]  [--version]
       [--zero] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends  a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP) REPORT PHY EVENT LIST 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  list  descriptors.  Each  descriptor  contains  a phy
       identifier, 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.

       -f, --force
              force the report to continue after the last descriptor index has been exceeded. The
              default  action  is  too  stop  the  report when the last descriptor index has been
              exceeded.  at 1.

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

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

       -i, --index=IN
              starting phy event list descriptor index. IN is a value between 0  and  65535.  The
              default  is  1.  If  IN  is  0  then  the response should contain no phy event list
              descriptors but the 'last phy event list descriptor  index'  and  'phy  event  list
              descriptor  length'  fields  in  the response should be set appropriately. The last
              point was clarified in SPL-2 revision 3.

       -l, --long
              prefix each phy event source string with its numeric identifier in hex.  Also place
              "phy_id="  in  front  of the phy identifier number.  For example: "phy_id=3: [0x1]:
              Invalid word count: 29"; without this option this line would be: "3:  Invalid  word
              count: 29".

       -n, --nonz
              only  show  phy  events with non-zero counts or peak values. The default is to show
              all phy events in the response.

       -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

       -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 LIST function was introduced in SAS-2 .
