Retrieves a Telemetry Host-Initiated log page from an NVMe device


nvme telemetry-log <device> [--output-file=<file> | -O <file>]
                        [--host-generate=<gen> | -g <gen>]
                        [--output-format=<fmt> | -o <fmt>] [--verbose | -v]


Retrieves an Telemetry Host-Initiated log page from an NVMe device and provides the 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 will be in raw binary format only with --output-file option which is mandatory.


-O <file>, --output-file=<file>

File name to which raw binary data will be saved to.

-g <gen>, --host-generate=<gen>

If set to 1, controller shall capture the Telemetry Host-Initiated data representing the internal state of the controller at the time the associated Get Log Page command is processed. If cleated to 0, controller shall not update this data.

-d <da>, --data-area=<da>

Retrieves the specific data area requested. Valid inputs are 1,2,3,4. If this option is not specified, the default value is 3, since data area 4 may not be supported.

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

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

-v, ā€‰--verbose

Increase the information detail in the output.
