       vendstat - query InfiniBand vendor specific functions


       vendstat [options] <lid|guid>


       vendstat  uses  vendor  specific  MADs  to  access  beyond  the  IB  spec  vendor specific
       functionality. Currently,  there  is  support  for  Mellanox  InfiniSwitch-III  (IS3)  and
       InfiniSwitch-IV (IS4).


       -N     show IS3 or IS4 general information.

       -w     show IS3 port xmit wait counters.

       -i     show IS4 counter group info.

       -c <num,num>
              configure IS4 counter groups.

              Configure  IS4  counter groups 0 and 1. Such configuration is not persistent across
              IS4 reboot.  First number is for counter group 0 and second is for counter group 1.

              Group 0 counter config values:

                 0 - PortXmitDataSL0-7 1 - PortXmitDataSL8-15 2 - PortRcvDataSL0-7

              Group 1 counter config values:

       ::     1 - PortXmitDataSL8-15 2 - PortRcvDataSL0-7 8 - PortRcvDataSL8-15

       -R, --Read <addr,mask>
              Read configuration space record at addr

       -W, --Write <addr,val,mask>
              Write configuration space record at addr

   Addressing Flags
       -G, --Guid     The address specified is a Port GUID

       -L, --Lid   The address specified is a LID

       -s, --sm_port <smlid>     use 'smlid' as the target lid for SA queries.

   Port Selection flags
       -C, --Ca <ca_name>    use the specified ca_name.

       -P, --Port <ca_port>    use the specified ca_port.

   Local port Selection
       Multiple port/Multiple CA support: when no IB device or port is specified (see the  "local
       umad  parameters"  below),  the libibumad library selects the port to use by the following

          1. the first port that is ACTIVE.

          2. if not found, the first port that is UP (physical link up).

          If a port and/or CA name is specified, the libibumad library attempts  to  fulfill  the
          user request, and will fail if it is not possible.

          For example:

              ibaddr                 # use the first port (criteria #1 above)
              ibaddr -C mthca1       # pick the best port from "mthca1" only.
              ibaddr -P 2            # use the second (active/up) port from the first available IB device.
              ibaddr -C mthca0 -P 2  # use the specified port only.

   Debugging flags
       -d     raise the IB debugging level.  May be used several times (-ddd or -d -d -d).

       -e     show send and receive errors (timeouts and others)

       -h, --help      show the usage message

       -v, --verbose
              increase  the application verbosity level.  May be used several times (-vv or -v -v

       -V, --version     show the version info.

   Configuration flags
       -t, --timeout <timeout_ms> override the default timeout for the solicited mads.

       --config, -z  <config_file> Specify alternate config file.
          Default: /etc/infiniband-diags/ibdiag.conf



       A global config file is provided to set some of the common options  for  all  tools.   See
       supplied config file for details.


       ::     vendstat  -N  6            #  read  IS3  or  IS4  general information vendstat -w 6

              counter  group  info vendstat -c 0,1 6 12    # configure IS4 port 12 counter groups
              for PortXmitDataSL vendstat -c 2,8 6 12    # configure IS4 port 12  counter  groups
