-o (text|nvmxml), -output (text|nvmxml)

Changes the output format. One of: "text" (default) or "nvmxml".

Targets

-dimm [DimmIDs]

Filter output to specific PMem modules by optionally supplying one or more comma separated PMem module identifiers. The default is to include all manageable PMem modules.

Properties

SequenceNumber

Error log entries are stored with a sequence number starting with 1 and rolling over back to 1 after 65535. Limit the error log entries returned by providing a sequence number. Only errors with a sequence number equal to or higher than provided will be returned. The default is 1.

Level

Severity level of errors to be fetched. One of:

  • "High": High severity errors (Default)
  • "Low": Low severity errors
Count

Max number of error entries to be fetched and printed. The default is 8 for media errors and 16 for thermal errors.

Examples

Show all high thermal error log entries

ipmctl show -error Thermal Level=High

Show all low media error log entries

ipmctl show -error Media Level=Low

Limitations

To successfully execute this command, the specified PMem modules must be manageable by the host software. In addition, for PMem modules with firmware version 2.3 and above, errors due to AIT operations are no longer exposed.

Return Data

Prints errors of the specified type for the specified PMem modules. If no errors are found, the following message will be printed:

No errors found on PMem module (DimmID)
