Topology Comparison

IBUtils2 Utility Release Notes v2.15

Topology comparison is used to check that actual fabric matches the designed topology.

Below is a list of parameters controlling topology validation.

Parameter

Description

-w | --write_topo_file <file>

Writes out a topology file for the discovered topology.

-t | --topo_file <file>

Specifies the topology file name. Provided topology file will be compared against the discovered topology. Any mismatch between the two topologies will be reported in the log file.

--out_ibnl_dir <dir>

Directory for additional custom system definitions (IBNL) files.
Ibdiagnet will add IBNL files to this folder in the 'write topo' stage for any node from the discovered topology that does not have a file in ibdm/ibnl. ibdiagnet will use this folder as an input folder in the 'read topo' stage for any node in the given topology file that does not have a file in ibdm/ibnl.
