Changes to existing tools

  • qetharp: Support IPv6 for query ARP cache for HiperSockets
    • For HiperSockets (real and GuestLAN) in Layer 3 mode, qetharp is now able to show IPv6 entries. These entries are only shown if qetharp is called with -6 or --ipv6 in conjunction with -q.
  • zfcpdbf: Adjust to 2.6.38 zfcp driver changes
    • The zfcp driver tracing infrastructure was changed for kernel 2.6.38: The zfcpdbf tool is updated to work with the new trace data.
    • For analyzing traces from kernel dumps with the dump analysis tool "crash" version 5.1.0 (or later) the "-s" s390dbf command option can be used to save the traces to disk and afterwards run zfcpdbf on the saved traces.
    • Note that zfcpdbf in s390-tools 1.13 (or later) will not be able to process zfcp traces from kernels older than 2.6.38.

Bug fixes

  • cmsfs-fuse:
    • Allow opening of read-only disk images
    • Enlarge the file system name string
    • Prevent segmentation fault if $HOME is undefined
  • cpuplugd: Fix multiplication in rule expressions
  • hyptop: Prevent interactive mode on s390 line mode terminals
    • To prevent hyptop starting in interactive mode on line mode terminals, the TERM variable is checked. If TERM is unset or set to "dumb" interactive mode is not allowed.
