       ibdmsh IB DATA MODEL - Extentended TCL shell

       ibdmsh is a TCL shell extended with interface for the IB data model.  To use this shell
       you will write TCL code that directly access the IB data model objects and functions.

       The following sub sections provide detailed definition for those objects and API.

IBDM Constants
       Node Types

       The following constants are used by the node object type field


	   [ Constant : int  ] $IB_SW_NODE = IB_SW_NODE

	   [ Constant : int  ] $IB_CA_NODE = IB_CA_NODE

       Log Verbosity Flags

       The following constants are used as argument bits for the global variable $FabricUtilsVer-

	   [ Constant : int  ] $FABU_LOG_NONE = 0x0

	   [ Constant : int  ] $FABU_LOG_ERROR = 0x1

	   [ Constant : int  ] $FABU_LOG_INFO = 0x2

	   [ Constant : int  ]	$FABU_LOG_VERBOSE = 0x4

IBDM Globals
       Log level: set to FABU_LOG* values

	   [ Global : int ] $FabricUtilsVerboseLevel

IBDM Objects
       This section decribes the various object types exposed by IBDM.

       IBDM exposes some of its internal objects. The objects identifiers returned by the various
       function calls are formatted according to the following rules:

       Fabric: fabric:<idx>

       System: system:<fab idx>:<sys name>

       SysPort: sysport:<fab idx>:<sys name>:<port name>

       Node: node:<fab idx>:<node name>

       Port: port:<fab idx>:<node name>/<port num>

       IBDM Objects are standard Swig-Tcl objects. As such they have two flavors for their usage:
       Variables, Objects.

	  For each object attribute a "get" and "set" methods are provided.
	  The format of the methods is: <class>_<attribute>_<get|set>.
	  The "set" method is only available for read/write attributes.

	  set nodes [ibdm_get_nodes]
	  set node  [lindex $nodes 0]
	  IBNode_numPorts_get $node

	  Given an object pointer one can convert it to a Tcl "Object"
	  using the following command:
	  <class> <obj_name> -this <obj pointer>

	  Once declared the <obj-name> can be used in conjunction to
	  with the standard "configure" and "cget" commands.

	  Example (following the previous one):
	  IBFabric VaTech -this $fabric
	  VaTech cget -NodeByName

	  To delete an object symbol (and enable its mapping to another
	  pointer) use:
	  rename <obj name> ""
	  for example:
	  rename VaTech ""
