ndctl-zero-labels - zero out the label area on a dimm or set of dimms
ndctl zero-labels <nmem0> [<nmem1>..<nmemN>] [<options>]
The namespace label area is a small persistent partition of capacity
available on some NVDIMM devices. The label area is used to resolve
aliasing between pmem and blk capacity by delineating namespace
This command resets the device to its default state by
deleting all labels.
A nmemX device name, or a dimm id number. Restrict the operation to
the specified dimm(s). The keyword all can be specified to indicate
the lack of any restriction, however this is the same as not supplying
a --dimm option at all.
Limit the operation to the given number of bytes. A size of 0
indicates to operate over the entire label capacity.
Begin the operation at the given offset into the label area.
A bus id number, or a provider string (e.g. "ACPI.NFIT"). Restrict the
operation to the specified bus(es). The keyword all can be specified
to indicate the lack of any restriction, however this is the same as
not supplying a --bus option at all.
Turn on verbose debug messages in the library (if ndctl was built with
logging and debug enabled).
