Hardware events pertain to changing the physical system hardware. In the case of LDoms software, the only hardware changes that can be made are those to the service processor (SP) when a user adds, removes, or sets an SP configuration. Currently, the only three events of this type are:
The hardware events always contain only a <Section> tag in the OVF data section which describes which SP configuration to which the event is happening. To register for these events, send an <LDM_interface> message with the <action> tag set to reg-hardware-events. Unregistering for these events requires an <LDM_interface> message with the <action> tag set to unreg-hardware-events.
