Synopsis

ipmctl dump [OPTIONS] -destination (file_prefix) [-dict (file)] -debug -dimm (DimmIDs) [PROPERTIES]

Description

Dumps encoded firmware debug logs from specified DCPMMs and optionally decodes to human readable text.

Options

-h, -help

Displays help for the command.

Target

-destination (file_prefix)

The command will create files that use the given filename as a prefix and append the DCPMM UID, DCPMM handle, debug log source, and the appropriate file type (.bin for encoded logs, .txt for decoded logs) onto the end.

file_prefix_Uid_Handle_logsource.[bin,txt]
-dict (path)

Optional file path to the dictionary file. If supplied, the command will create both the binary debug log and a text file with decoded log data with the file prefix specified by -destination.

-dimm (DimmIDs)

Dumps the debug logs from the specified DCPMMs.

Examples

Dumps and decodes the debug log from DCPMM 0x0001 and 0x0011 using the dictionary file.

ipmctl dump -destination file_prefix -dict nlog_dict.txt -debug -dimm 0x0001,0x0011

Limitations

To successfully execute this command, the specified DCPMM(s) must be manageable by the host software.

Return Data

Dumps the encoded and optionally decoded contents of all 3 firmware debug log sources for the specified DCPMMs. Output file names are generated based on the -destination parameter above.
