Use the dumperrlog command to dump the contents of the event log to a text file.


dumperrlog [ -prefixfilename_prefix ]


(Optional) A file name is created from the prefix and a time stamp, and has the following format:


where NNNNNN is the node front panel name.
Note: If the -prefix parameter is not supplied, the dump is directed to a file with a system-defined prefix of errlog.


When run with no parameters, this command dumps the system event log to a file using a system-supplied prefix of errlog, which includes the node ID and time stamp. When a file name prefix is provided, the same operation is performed but the details are stored in the dumps directory within a file with a name that starts with the specified prefix.

A maximum of ten event-log dump files are kept on the system. When the 11th dump is made, the oldest existing dump file is overwritten.

Event log dump files are written to /dumps/elogs. The contents of this directory can be viewed using the lsdumps command.

Files are not deleted from other nodes until you issue the cleardumps command.

Note: The DMP family is printed at the end of all events in the event log.
