How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

Hi All,

Can any one explain the best way to get the HBA driver info on a SLES 10 machine?

Re: How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

A generic way:
go to /proc/scsi, find the sub-directory of your HBA driver ("lpfc" for Emulex FC HBAs, "qla2xxx" for Qlogic FC HBAs, various other names for SCSI HBAs). Examine the files in that directory to find some basic information.

Typically the directory has one file per HBA controlled by that particular driver.

The files will be reported as having zero size, as is normal with the /proc filesystem: the content is actually generated dynamically from kernel data structures at the time the file is opened.

To get more information than that, you may need HBA manufacturer-specific tools (for example, the "lputil" command for Emulex HBAs).

Re: How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

Hi All,

I have one RHEL5 and one SLES10 machines and each machine has one qlogic HBA.

Generally To get the driver name of a HBA i will use the /Sys file system.

I use the following command to get the HBA driver info.

#cat /sys/class/scsi_host/*/proc_name

The above command is working fine on RHEL4 and SLES10 but it is returning on SLES 10 and on RHEL5. Is it a but in SLES10/RHEL5 ?

Shalom,

lsmod will tell you which ones are loaded in memory.

Re: How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

Hi Shalom,

lsmod gives you the list of loaded driver modules, but i want to figure out which driver is driving a specific HBA.

Hi,

e.g. lpfc

# cd /sys/class/scsi_host/host1
# cat lpfc_drvr_version
Emulex LightPulse Fibre Channel SCSI driver 8.1.10.3

or:

# cd /sys/module/lpfc
# cat version
0:8.1.10.3

Hi Hemmetter,

Thanks for reply!

But I am keen about Qlogic HBA on SLES10/RHEL5.

Re: How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

Hi USHA,

It is not easy to explain this in a generic way. The way do get this information changes from kernel to kernel and differs from driver to driver.

Driver version can be retrieved by
# dmesg | grep "QLogic.*Driver"
QLogic Fibre Channel HBA Driver: 8.01.02-sles

but even this grep -pattern varies.


You can also follow your pci-bus-id to find information under /sys:

# lspci | grep Q
0000:03:02.0 SCSI storage controller: QLogic Corp. QLA2200 64-bit Fibre Channel
Adapter (rev 05)



# find /sys | grep 03:02
/sys/bus/pci/drivers/qla2200/0000:03:02.0
/sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:03:02.0
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6/nvram
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6/fw_dump
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6/power
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6/power/state
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/host6/detach_state
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/pools
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/config
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/resource
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/irq
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/class
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/subsystem_device
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/subsystem_vendor
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/device
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/vendor
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/power
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/power/state
/sys/devices/pci0000:03/0000:03:02.0/detach_state

Now you have to decide yourself if one of these holds the information you are searching for.


And even in the
/sys/class/scsi_host/host$(X)/*
you may find something helpful.

You just have to select the right hostX subdirectory.


Or do you want to know what module you have to load to use your QLogic HBA?

#find /lib/modules/ | grep -i qla
will give you a clue about available kernel modules.
now you can modprobe one by one until you get a positive response.

Re: How to get HBS driver info on a SLES 10 machine

Do a lspci to locate the device ID for your device.

In my case (I know this machine has an Emulex HBA so i filter that) "lspci |grep -i emul" gives:

0e:00.0 Fibre Channel: Emulex Corporation Zephyr LightPulse Fibre Channel Host Adapter (rev 02)

take that ID and do a search on /sys/bus/pci/drivers/, example:

>> find /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ -name "*0e:00.0*"
/sys/bus/pci/drivers/lpfc/0000:0e:00.0

The name you get in /sys/bus/pci/$NAME/$DID is the module that took the device....

Later you can check the modules info with modinfo:
