NVME-GET-PROPERTY(1) NVMe Manual NVME-GET-PROPERTY(1)

NAME

nvme-get-property - Reads and shows the defined NVMe controller property for NVMe over Fabric

SYNOPSIS

nvme get-property <device> [--offset=<offset> | -o <offset>]

[--human-readable | -H ]

DESCRIPTION

Reads and shows the defined NVMe controller property for NVMe over Fabric.

OPTIONS

-o, --offset

The offset of the property. One of CAP=0x0, VS=0x8, CC=0x14, CSTS=0x1c, NSSR=0x20

-H

--human-readable: Show the fields packed in the property

EXAMPLES

•The following will run the get-property command with offset 0

# nvme get-property /dev/nvme0 --offset=0x0 --human-readable

BUGS

Currently the CAP value is truncated to 32 bits due to a limitation in the ioctl interface.

In a recent enough kernel, the 64 bit value is shown in kernel traces.

•First enable traces by this command

# echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/nvme/enable

•Then look for NVMe Fabrics command (0x7f) at trace

/sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
