The Oracle ILOM CLI interface uses a set of commands that affect targets. The commands act like verbs, and the targets are analogous to nouns. The command line is like a rudimentary sentence. For example, to display the event log, the command line is:
-> show /SP/logs/event/list
show is the command (or verb).
/SP/logs/event/list is the target (or noun).
