NAME

dlm - Administer Dynamically Loadable Modules

SYNOPSIS

dlm [ list | load objectfile | unload objectfile ]

DESCRIPTION

The dlm command administers dynamically loadable modules (DLMs). A DLM is an independent section of Data ONTAP code (an object file) implementing a particular optional or configuration-dependent functional component.

OPTIONS

list
Lists the names of currently loaded modules and their base addresses. The Data ONTAP kernel itself is treated as a module and this is always listed first. For example:
  kernel                           at 0x0xfffffc0000200000
  /etc/modules/foo.mod             at 0x0x00000004444900b8

load
Instructs the system to load a module identified by the name objectfile. See below for the form of this name.

unload
Requests the system to unload the module object_file. This may fail if the module is in use.

Note: in normal use, there should never be a need to use the load or unload options since modules are loaded automatically when required.

FILES

Modules are object files which reside in the root filesystem in the /etc/modules directory. The full objectfile name of a module is of the form /etc/modules/foo.mod
