hpievents man page

hpievents — An openhpi sample application that polls for events.


 hpievents [ -D <value> ] [-N host[:port]] [-C <cfgfile>] [ -t BLOCK|SAHPI_TIMEOUT_BLOCK|n ] [ -d -X -h ]
 hpievents [--domain=nn] [--host=host[:port]] [--cfgfile=file]
           [--timeout=BLOCK|SAHPI_TIMEOUT_BLOCK|n ] [--discover] [--debug] [--help]


hpievents polls for events in an opened HPI session.  User can specify wait time for the event. User can also select the order between hpi resource (resource event) discovery and hpi event subscription.

If no domain or host is selected, hpievents polls for events in the default domain as specified in the openhpiclient.conf file.
