Description Afom T. Michael 2019-07-19 22:13:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Manpage of perftest commands such as ib_read_bw has a different --connection options from that shown by "ib_read_bw --help".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@rdma-perf-03 ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.7 (Maipo)
[root@rdma-perf-03 ~]$ uname -r
3.10.0-1061.el7.x86_64
[root@rdma-perf-03 ~]$ rpm -qa | grep -E 'rdma|verb|infiniband|perftest'
libibverbs-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
librdmacm-utils-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
rdma-core-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
perftest-4.2-2.el7.x86_64
infiniband-diags-2.1.0-1.el7.x86_64
libibverbs-utils-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
librdmacm-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
rdma-core-devel-22.1-3.el7.x86_64
[root@rdma-perf-03 ~]$

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man ib_atomic_bw | grep connection\=
2. ib_read_bw --help | grep connection\=
3. 

Actual results:
$ $ man ib_read_bw | grep connection\=
           -c, --connection=<RC/UC/UD>
$ ib_read_bw --help | grep connection\=
  -c, --connection=<RC/XRC/DC>  Connection type RC/XRC/DC (default RC)
$

Expected results:
For perftest commands manpage and command --help to match
