LINKSTAT(1)							   LINKSTAT(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     linkstat -	a Craylink monitoring tool

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     linkstat [-e][-c] -a | hwgraph_filename

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     linkstat reports on router	link performance and error rates.  It also
     reports error rates on the	Hub chip Craylink network interface (NI) and
     I/O Interface (II)	links.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -c	  Report information continuously every	five seconds.

     -e	  Only report error rates, not performance information.

     -a	  Report on all	links in the system.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     To	get information	about a	particular link, you might try something like

     # linkstat	/hw/module/1/slot/n1/node/hub/mon
     Hub: /hw/module/1/slot/n1/node/hub/mon
      NI: Retries 0 (0/Min), SN	errs 0 (0/Min),	CB errs	0 (0/Min)
      II: SN errs 0 (0/Min), CB	errs 0 (0/Min)

     SN	errs refers to sequence	number errors.	Some number of these is
     normal.  Do not be	alarmed	by SN error counts.  CB	errs refers to
     checkbit errors.  None of these errors are	fatal, but high	checkbit error
     or	retry counts may indicate a problem.

     # linkstat	/hw/module/1/slot/r2/router/mon
     Router: /hw/module/1/slot/r2/router/mon
      Port 3:  Utilization: bypass 0%  receive 2%  send	2%
       Retries 71847 (6/Min), SN errs 116395 (19/Min), CB errs 31196
      Port 5:  Utilization: bypass 9%  receive 13%  send 20%
       Retries 25087 (2/Min), SN errs 497298 (38/Min), CB errs 30417650
      Port 6:  Utilization: bypass 0%  receive 4%  send	3%
       Retries 46394 (4/Min), SN errs 6252865 (599/Min), CB errs 5557

     This example is from a sick system.  The checkbit errors on port 5	are
     excessive.	 All of	the other numbers are within spec.  Send and receive
     utilizations indicate how much of a port's	peak bandwith is being used.
     Bypass indicates what percentage of traffic is able to use	the latencyreducing
 bypass feature of	the router chip.

     # linkstat	-a

     This example would	display	information about all of the links on the

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     If	there are no routers present, the linkstat -a output will include a
     message like this one:

     Cannot access /hw/module/*/slot/r*/router/mon:
     No	such file or directory

     Do	not be alarmed.
