       smp_rep_self_conf_stat - invoke REPORT SELF-CONFIGURATION STATUS SMP function


       smp_rep_self_conf_stat   [--brief]  [--help]  [--hex]  [--index=SDI]  [--interface=PARAMS]
       [--last] [--one] [--raw] [--sa=SAS_ADDR] [--verbose] [--version] SMP_DEVICE[,N]


       Sends a SAS Serial Management Protocol (SMP)  REPORT  SELF-CONFIGURATION  STATUS  function
       request  to  an  SMP  target.  The  SMP  target  is  identified  by the SMP_DEVICE and the
       --sa=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.

       -b, --brief
              lessen the amount of header information output and compress each  self  confuration
              status descriptor to one line of output.

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

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

       -i, --index=SDI
              SDI  is  the starting self-configuration status descriptor index, an integer in the
              range 0 to 65535. The default value is 1 . If SDI is  0  then  no  descriptors  are
              placed  in  the  response  plus  the "starting self-configuration status descriptor
              index" and "total number of self-configuration status descriptors"  fields  in  the
              response  are  both  set to 0. That makes setting SDI to 0 a lot less useful tha it
              could have been. SDI may be decimal (default) or hexadecimal prefixed by  '0x'  (or
              '0X') or with a 'h' (or 'H') suffix.

       -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, --last
              Sends  a  REPORT  SELF-CONFIGURATION STATUS request to find out the contents of the
              "last self-configuration status descriptor index" field in the response. If  it  is
              different   from   SDI   then   it   re-issues  that  request  with  the  "starting
              self-configuration status descriptor index" field set to the  "last"  value.  Often
              only  the  last  (i.e.  most recent) recorded descriptor is of interest and that is
              what this option should show. In cases  there  may  be  more  than  one  descriptor
              starting at the last index.

       -o, --one
              If  multiple  self-configuration status descriptors are found, then only output the
              first one.

       -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. The mpt interface needs this
              option and it will typically be an expander's  SAS  address.  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.


       The "last self-configuration status descriptor index" field in the response  may  indicate
       the  lowest  index  of  the last recorded (i.e. most recent) "clump" of status descriptors
       placed in the expander's storage.

       This utility flags the "last self-configuration status descriptor index" descriptor in its
       output  with  a  ">>>"  indication. For brief output the descriptor line starts with ">>>"
       while for normal output (i.e. when --brief not given) the index has ">>>" placed in  front
       of it.


       The SMP REPORT SELF-CONFIGURATION STATUS function was introduced in SAS-2 .
