 NAME
      stm, xstm, mstm, cstm -  Support Tools Manager



 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/bin/stm [-x|-m|-c] [-f command_file]

      /usr/sbin/xstm [-f command_file]

      /usr/sbin/mstm [-f command_file]

      /usr/sbin/cstm [-f command_file]


 DESCRIPTION
      The Support Tools Manager (STM) provides three interfaces that allow a
      user access to an underlying toolset, consisting of information
      modules, firmware update tools, verifiers, diagnostics, exercisers,
      expert tools, and utilities:

      XSTM -  the graphical interface (for X11-based graphics terminals)

      MSTM -  the menu-based interface (for non-X11-based, non-graphics
      terminals)

      CSTM -  the command line interface (for running scripts)

      Which interface you choose will depend upon your needs, preferences,
      and resources as a user.

      If STM is run and [-x|-m|-c] is not specified, then:
	 If the "DISPLAY" environment variable is set, XSTM is run.
	 If the "DISPLAY" environment variable is not set, MSTM is run.


 OPTIONS
      -x

      The XSTM program is the X-Windows interface for the Support Tools
      Manager (STM).  It allows you to access and run various support tools
      (information modules, firmware update tools, verifiers, diagnostics,
      exercisers, and utilities, depending upon your level of licensing
      privilege) on one or more PA-RISC machines.

      You can run XSTM on one machine, and use it to run support tools on
      one or more remote machines (Units Under Test, or UUTs).
      Alternatively, you can run XSTM on one machine, and use it to run
      support tools on the same machine (i.e., the machine running XSTM and
      the UUT are one and the same).

      The basic principle of XSTM usage is that you see a display of the
      devices configured on the UUT (the system map, or device map) when you
      first run the interface.	By clicking on one or more icons
      representing the device(s) you want to test, or whose logs you want to
      view, and using the appropriate pulldown and popup menus, you can test
      your system to see if it is functioning properly.	 Any problems with
      your system will be reflected by color changes to the icons in the
      device map (e.g., red for "Failure").  By viewing the corresponding
      log (e.g. the Failure Log), you can then determine the appropriate
      corrective action to take.   Use the Help pulldown menu to access the
      online help system.

      -m

      The MSTM program is the menu interface for the Support Tools Manager
      (STM).  It provides the same functionality as XSTM described above.
      The device map is a list of devices on the Unit Under Test (UUT).	 You
      select devices by moving the cursor with the up and down arrow keys to
      the line entry for the desired device(s).	 You issue commands by means
      of function keys.	 Any problems with your system will be reflected by
      changes in the "Last Op Status" column of the device map.	 By viewing
      the corresponding log (e.g. the Failure Log), you can then determine
      the appropriate corrective action to take.  Press the help function
      key to access the online help system.

      -c

      The CSTM program is the command line interface for the Support Tools
      Manager (STM).  It provides the same functionality as XSTM described
      above.  Entering the command "map" displays a list of devices (the
      device map) on the Unit Under Test (UUT).	 You select devices by
      entering the hardware path or device number for the desired device(s);
      use the command "select path" or "select device".	 Any problems with
      your system will be reflected by error, warning, or caution messages
      displayed by the system.	By viewing the corresponding log (e.g. the
      Failure Log), you can then determine the appropriate corrective action
      to take.	Entering the command "help" displays a summary of the cstm
      commands; the command "help all" gives you full access to the online
      help system.

      -f command_file

      The "-f" option allows the user to specify a CSTM command file to run
      prior to bringing up the selected User Interface.	 Multiple "-f
      command_file" options can be provided and the command files will be
      processed from left to right.
