NAME

ndctl-inject-smart - perform smart threshold/injection operations on a DIMM

SYNOPSIS

ndctl inject-smart <dimm> [<options>]

DESCRIPTION

A generic DIMM device object, named /dev/nmemX, is registered for each memory device indicated in the ACPI NFIT table, or other platform NVDIMM resource discovery mechanism.

ndctl-inject-smart can be used to set smart thresholds, and inject smart attributes.

EXAMPLES

Set smart controller temperature and spares threshold for DIMM-0 to 32C, spares threshold to 8, and enable the spares alarm.

ndctl inject-smart --ctrl-temperature-threshold=32 --spares-threshold=8 --spares-alarm nmem0

Inject a media temperature value of 52 and fatal health status flag for DIMM-0

ndctl inject-smart --media-temperature=52 --health=fatal nmem0

OPTIONS

-b; --bus=
Enforce that the operation only be carried on devices that are attached to the given bus. Where bus can be a provider name or a bus id number.

-m; --media-temperature=
Inject <value> for the media temperature smart attribute.

-M; --media-temperature-threshold=
Set <value> for the smart media temperature threshold.

--media-temperature-alarm=
Enable or disable the smart media temperature alarm. Options are on or off.

--media-temperature-uninject
Uninject any media temperature previously injected.

-c; --ctrl-temperature=
Inject <value> for the controller temperature smart attribute.

-C; --ctrl-temperature-threshold=
Set <value> for the smart controller temperature threshold.

--ctrl-temperature-alarm=
Enable or disable the smart controller temperature alarm. Options are on or off.

--ctrl-temperature-uninject
Uninject any controller temperature previously injected.

-s; --spares=
Inject <value> for the spares smart attribute.

-S; --spares-threshold=
Set <value> for the smart spares threshold.

--spares-alarm=
Enable or disable the smart spares alarm. Options are on or off.

--spares-uninject
Uninject any spare percentage previously injected.

-f; --fatal
Set the flag to spoof fatal health status.

--fatal-uninject
Uninject the fatal health status flag.

-U; --unsafe-shutdown
Set the flag to spoof an unsafe shutdown on the next power down.

--unsafe-shutdown-uninject
Uninject the unsafe shutdown flag.

-N; --uninject-all
Uninject all possible smart fields/values irrespective of whether they have been previously injected or not.

-v; --verbose
Emit debug messages for the error injection process

-u; --human
Format numbers representing storage sizes, or offsets as human readable strings with units instead of the default machine-friendly raw-integer data. Convert other numeric fields into hexadecimal strings.
