This section describes displaying the host server console output buffer.
The console buffer is a circular buffer that can contain up to 1 Mbyte of information. The buffer captures all POST and boot information as well as any OS information that is controlled through the ILOM host console, for example, start /SP/console.
Note - You must have Administrator level user permission to use this command.
-> set /SP/console/history property=option[...] -> show /SP/console/history
where property can be:
line_count – This option accepts a value within the range of 1 to 2048 lines. Specify "" for an unlimited number of lines. The default is all lines.
pause_count – This option accepts a value of 1 to any valid integer or "" for infinite number of lines. The default is not to pause..
start_from – The options are:
end – The last line (most recent) in the buffer (the default).
beginning – The first line in the buffer.
If you type the show /SP/console/history command without having set any arguments with the set command, ILOM displays all lines of the console log, starting from the end.
Note - Timestamps recorded in the console log reflect server time. These timestamps reflect local time, and the ILOM console log uses UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). The Solaris OS system time is independent of the ILOM time.
