NAME

       ievents - decode IPMI and PET event data

SYNOPSIS

       ievents [-bfhnprsx] 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0a 0b 0c 0d 0e 0f 10

DESCRIPTION

       ievents  is  a  standalone utility delivered with ipmiutil, used to interpret raw hex data
       from IPMI events or from IPMI PET SNMP trap varbind data.   This  utility  uses  the  same
       interpretation  logic  as  is  used  by  "ipmiutil  sel"  (showsel)  and "ipmiutil getevt"
       (getevents).

       The data bytes in the input are always assumed to be in hex form.

       This could be useful if a utility other than "ipmiutil sel" were used to obtain  IPMI  SEL
       records or events and interpretation is needed.

       This  would  also  be needed at an enterprise management station to interpret the PET SNMP
       trap hex data into human-readable form, see option -p.

OPTIONS

       -b bin_file
              Interpret a file containing raw binary/hex SEL data dumped in binary form, such  as
              that  produced  by  "ipmitool  sel writeraw bin_file".  Each set of 16 bytes in the
              file will be interpreted as an IPMI event.  (same as -h)

       -f sel_file
              Interpret a file containing raw ascii text SEL data captured with ipmiutil sel  -r,
              or  some other similar utility.  Each line in the file should be in this form, with
              no leading spaces:
              04 00 02 76 a9 4a 47 20 00 04 10 09 6f 42 0f ff
              If this option is not specified, the default is to use the 16 bytes taken from  the
              command-line arguments.  (same as -r)

       -h bin_file
              Interpret  a file containing raw binary/hex SEL data dumped in binary form, such as
              that produced by "ipmitool sel writeraw bin_file".  Each set of  16  bytes  in  the
              file will be interpreted as an IPMI event.  (same as -b)

       -n     This option generates a New IPMI platform event, using 9 bytes of input.  The input
              bytes are the same as the last 9 bytes of an IPMI event.

       -p     Decode as PET event bytes, where the input is 34 PET hex data bytes,  skipping  the
              first  8 of the 47-byte PET data.  The default without -p assumes that the input is
              a 16-byte IPMI event.

       -r sel_file
              Interpret a file containing raw ascii text SEL data captured with ipmiutil sel  -r,
              or some other similar utility.  (same as -f)

       -s sensor_file
              Sensor  file  with the output of "ipmiutil sensor", used to get the PET sensor_type
              from  the  sensor_num.   The  default  is   /usr/share/ipmiutil/sensor_out.txt   as
              generated  during  the ipmiutil package installation.  This is only needed with PET
              interpretation (-p).
