       Retrieves an arbitrary NVMe log page from an NVMe device and provides the returned

       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 be displayed in hex by the program or the raw buffer
       may be printed to stdout for another program to parse.


       -l <log-len>, --log-len=<log-len>
           Allocates a buffer of <log-len> bytes size and requests this many bytes be returned in
           the constructed NVMe command. This param is mandatory.

       -i <log-id>, --log-id=<log-id>
           Sets the commands requested log-id to <log-id>. Defaults to 0.

       -a <aen>, --aen=<aen>
           Convenience field for extracting log information based on an asynchronous event
           notification result. This will override log-id and log-len, if set.

       -n <nsid>, --namespace-id=<nsid>
           Sets the command’s nsid value to the given nsid. Defaults to 0xffffffff if not given.
           This option may not affect anything depending on the log page, which may or may not be
           specific to a namespace.

       -b, --raw-binary
           Print the raw log buffer to stdout.

       -o <offset>, --lpo=<offset>
           The log page offset specifies the location within a log page to start returning data
           from. It’s Dword-aligned and 64-bits.

       -s <field>, --lsp=<field>
           The log specified field of LID.

       -S <field>, --lsi=<field>
           The log specified field of Log Specific Identifier.

       -r, --rae
           Retain an Asynchronous Event.

       -y <command_set_identifier>, --csi=<command_set_identifier>
           This field specifies the identifier of command set. if not issued, NVM Command Set
           will be selected.

       -O, --ot
           Offset Type


       •   Get 512 bytes from log page 2

               # nvme get-log /dev/nvme0 --log-id=2 --log-len=512

           The above example will get log page 2 (SMART), and request 512 bytes. On success, the
           returned log will be dumped in hex and not interpreted by the program.

       •   Have the program return the raw log page in binary:

               # nvme get-log /dev/nvme0 -log-id=2 --log-len=512 --raw-binary > log_page_2.raw
               # nvme get-log /dev/nvme0 -i 2 -l 512 -b > log_page_2.raw

           It is not a good idea to not redirect stdout when using this mode.
