       hpievents - An openhpi sample application that polls for events.


        hpievents [ -D <value> ] [-N host[:port]] [-C <cfgfile>] [ -t BLOCK|SAHPI_TIMEOUT_BLOCK|n ] [ -d -X -h ]
        hpievents [--domain=nn] [--host=host[:port]] [--cfgfile=file]
                  [--timeout=BLOCK|SAHPI_TIMEOUT_BLOCK|n ] [--discover] [--debug] [--help]


       hpievents polls for events in an opened HPI session.  User can specify wait time for the
       event. User can also select the order between hpi resource (resource event) discovery and
       hpi event subscription.

       If no domain or host is selected, hpievents polls for events in the default domain as
       specified in the openhpiclient.conf file.


   Help Options:
       -h, --help
         Show help options

   Application Options:
       -t n|BLOCK, --timeout=n|BLOCK
         Wait n seconds for event or infinite wait (BLOCK)

       -d, --discover
         Call saHpiDiscover() after saHpiSubscribe()

       -D nn, --domain=nn
         Select domain id nn

       -X, --debug
         Display debug messages

       -N "host[:port]", --host="host[:port]"
         Open session to the domain served by the daemon at the specified URL (host:port).  This
         option overrides the OPENHPI_DAEMON_HOST and OPENHPI_DAEMON_PORT environment variables.
         If host contains ':' (for example IPv6 address) then enclose it in square brackets.  For
         example: "[::1]" or "[::1]:4743".

       -C "file", --cfgfile="file"
         Use passed file as client configuration file.  This option overrides the
         OPENHPICLIENT_CONF environment variable.
