The firmware on the service processor (known in ALOM CMT as the SC or system controller) sends event messages to several destinations:
Messages are sent to all logged-in users, based on the configuration of the sc_clieventlevelvariable.
Messages are recorded in the event log. View logged messages using the ALOM compatibility shell showlogs command.
Messages recorded in the event log can be identified according to the severity of the event. If the severity of the event is major or critical, you can view the messages for those events using the ALOM compatibility shell showlogs –p r command. View all messages in the event log using the ALOM compatibility shell showlogs –p p command.
Messages are sent in email messages based on the configuration of the mgt_mailalert variable. Individual email addresses can be configured to receive messages of different severities.
If the event represents a fault, the event message appears in the output of the ALOM compatibility shell showfaults command.
Messages are sent to the managed system operating system for logging into the Oracle Solaris syslog facility based on the configuration of the sys_eventlevel variable. Not all versions of the Oracle Solaris Operating System support this capability.
