The section specifies additional options applicable to the fabric discovery stage of ibdiagnet.
|--enable_switch_dup_guid||By default, ibdiagnet does network discovery without checking duplicated switch GUIDs. To allow duplicated switch GUIDs check, this option should be specified.|
|--enable_spst||Deprecated. Speeds up fabric discovery by detecting down ports from switch's "Switch Port State Table". A switch must support the table. Otherwise will have no effect.|
|--discovery_only||Discovers a network and dumps it into ibdiganet2.db_csv file. This file may be used later with --load_from_file option.|
Running ibdiagnet without Fabric Discovery
The following ibdiagnet option can be used to avoid fabric discovery and speed up fabric diagnostics.
|-f | --load_from_file <path to ibdiagnet2.db_csv file>||Loads ibdiagnet db_csv from file to skip fabric discovery. HCAs and switches configuration will be obtained from the provided file. The input file must be a valid ibdiagnet db_csv file.|
