hpiel(1) OpenHPI hpiel(1)


hpiel - An openhpi sample application that displays HPI event log entries.


 hpiel [-D nn] [-N host[:port]] [-C <cfgfile>] [-d] [-E entity-path] [-c -p -r -X -h ]
 hpiel [--domain=nn]  [--host=host[:port]] [--cfgfile=file] 
       [--del] [--entity-path="entitypath"] [--clear --resource --rdr --debug --help]


hpiel searches the RPT (Resource Present Table) for resources with SAHPI_CAPABILITY_EVENT_LOG and displays event log entries for resources found.

If no domain is selected, hpiel uses a session with the default domain. The selected domain id must be configured via the openhpidclient.conf file specified in the environment.

Application Options:

Display domain event log entries
Clear log before reading event log entries
Pull resource info along with log entry
Pull RDR info along with log entry
Use entity path epath and display resource
Select domain id nn
Display debug messages
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".
Use passed file as client configuration file. This option overrides the OPENHPICLIENT_CONF environment variable.

If neither -d or -E "epath" are specified, event log entries will be shown for all supporting resources by default.
