nvme-get-log — Retrieves a log page from an NVMe device


nvme get-log <device> [--log-id=<log-id> | -i <log-id>]
                      [--log-len=<log-len> | -l <log-len>]
                      [--namespace-id=<nsid> | -n <nsid>]
                      [--raw-binary | -b]


Retrieves an arbitrary NVMe log page from an NVMe device and provides the retuned structure.

The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0), or a namespace block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1).

On success, the returned log structure may be returned in one of several ways depending on the option flags; the structure may be displayed in hex by the program or the raw buffer may be printed to stdout for another program to parse.


-l <log-len>, --log-len=<log-len>

Allocates a buffer of <log-len> bytes size and requests this many bytes be returned in the constructed NVMe command. This param is mandatory.

-i <log-id>, --log-id=<log-id>

Sets the commands requested log-id to <log-id>. Defaults to 0.

-n <nsid>, --namespace-id=<nsid>

Sets the command’s nsid value to the given nsid. Defaults to 0xffffffff if not given. This option may not affect anything depending on the log page, which may or may not be specific to a namespace.

-b, --raw-binary

Print the raw log buffer to stdout.
