-The device-mapper uevent code adds the capability to device-mapper to create
-and send kobject uevents (uevents). Previously device-mapper events were only
-available through the ioctl interface. The advantage of the uevents interface
-is the event contains environment attributes providing increased context for
-the event avoiding the need to query the state of the device-mapper device after
-the event is received.
-
-There are two functions currently for device-mapper events. The first function
-listed creates the event and the second function sends the event(s).
-
-void dm_path_uevent(enum dm_uevent_type event_type, struct dm_target *ti,
- const char *path, unsigned nr_valid_paths)
-
-void dm_send_uevents(struct list_head *events, struct kobject *kobj)
-
-
-The variables added to the uevent environment are:
-
-Variable Name: DM_TARGET
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: string
-Description:
-Value: Name of device-mapper target that generated the event.
-
-Variable Name: DM_ACTION
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: string
-Description:
-Value: Device-mapper specific action that caused the uevent action.
- PATH_FAILED - A path has failed.
- PATH_REINSTATED - A path has been reinstated.
-
-Variable Name: DM_SEQNUM
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: unsigned integer
-Description: A sequence number for this specific device-mapper device.
-Value: Valid unsigned integer range.
-
-Variable Name: DM_PATH
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: string
-Description: Major and minor number of the path device pertaining to this
-event.
-Value: Path name in the form of "Major:Minor"
-
-Variable Name: DM_NR_VALID_PATHS
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: unsigned integer
-Description:
-Value: Valid unsigned integer range.
-
-Variable Name: DM_NAME
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: string
-Description: Name of the device-mapper device.
-Value: Name
-
-Variable Name: DM_UUID
-Uevent Action(s): KOBJ_CHANGE
-Type: string
-Description: UUID of the device-mapper device.
-Value: UUID. (Empty string if there isn't one.)
-
-An example of the uevents generated as captured by udevmonitor is shown
-below.
