I have a requirement to write a script that collects inventory data of FusionIO drives from a Linux server.
The only method that I've been able to find is the
fio-status utility, but it's designed to output human-readable text, not machine-parsable text. I could scrape it, but that's dirty.
/proc/fusion but it doesn't have enough information to be of any use.
I'm hoping there's a better way, be it some sort of way to interface with
libiodrivesdk.so or an already-existing utility to do this job.
I was originally using v188.8.131.52. On Shane's recommendation I upgraded to 184.108.40.206.
fio-status now has a
-fk option that outputs:
sles11-live:~ # fio-status -fk ; Retrieving Fusion-io product information... [driver] total_ioDimms=4 ioDrive_Duos=2 driver_version=unavailable sdk_api_version=unavailable [adapter 1] product_name=IBM 640GB High IOPS MD Class PCIe Adapter product_number=68Y7381 …
Ugh, I was hoping for JSON but beggars can't be choosers.
