NAME

ndctl-wait-scrub - wait for an Address Range Scrub (ARS) operation to complete  

SYNOPSIS

ndctl wait-scrub [<bus-id> <bus-id2> ... <bus-idN>] [<options>]
 

DESCRIPTION

NVDIMM Address Range Scrub is a capability provided by platform firmware that allows for the discovery of memory errors by system software. It enables system software to pre-emptively avoid accesses that could lead to uncorrectable memory error handling events, and it otherwise allows memory errors to be enumerated.

The kernel provides a POLL(2) capable sysfs file (scrub) to indicate the state of ARS. The scrub file maintains a running count of ARS runs that have taken place. While a current run is in progress a + character is emitted along with the current count. The ndctl wait-scrub operation waits for scrub, across all specified buses, to indicate not in-progress at least once.  

EXAMPLE

Wait for scrub on all nvdimm buses in the system. The json listing report at the end only includes the buses that support ARS operations.


.ft C
# ndctl wait-scrub
[
  {
    "provider":"nfit_test.1",
    "dev":"ndbus3",
    "scrub_state":"idle"
  },
  {
    "provider":"nfit_test.0",
    "dev":"ndbus2",
    "scrub_state":"idle"
  }
]
.ft

When specifying an individual bus, or if there is only one bus in the system, the command reports whether ARS support is available.


.ft C
# ndctl wait-scrub e820
error waiting for scrub completion: Operation not supported
.ft

 

OPTIONS

-v, --verbose
