APA question

APA question

We have a Superdome that is going to be split from a two cell system into two one cell systems.
I'm in the process of documenting what interface cards are in use on the second cell (the one being formed into a new NPAR) so we know which ones need to move and which can stay.

How can I find how the name and status of the real interfaces so that I can see if they are being used.

I can't currently interrupt the system so I would need to do it live, if I can't figure anything out I'll just have to wait until next week and use the "hpapa stop" script to take it out of the mix.

Below are the output's I'm getting while APA is running.


With APA running netstat doesn't show the real interfaces just the APA interfaces.
netstat -in

Lanscan shows the interfaces but shows them all as up even if they don't have IP's or cables plugged in.

Re: APA question

lanscan -q will show what is aggregated to what. You can then located which lanX is what hardware address by either lanscan or an ioscan.

Also look in the /etc/rc.config.d/hpapa* files for config info.
