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).
