nvme-self-test-log - Man Page

Retrieve the log information initited by device-self-test and display it


nvme self-test-log <device> [--output-format=<FMT> | -o <FMT>]


Retrieves the log pages from an NVMe device corresponding to the requested self-test by the user and provides 20-most recent result returned 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 parsed by the program and printed in a readable format or the raw buffer or the json format.

By default the log is printed out in the normal readable format.


-o <format>, --output-format=<format>

Set the reporting format to normal, json, or binary. Only one output format can be used at a time.
