Oracle_LogEntry is used to represent individual log records of the IPMI SEL.
For a description of the supported properties for the Oracle_LogEntry class, see the following table.

Note - For more details about Oracle's Sun-supported properties (described in the following table), see the DMTF CIM schema, version 2.18.1, at:

Record Log

Table 125 Properties for Oracle_LogEntry

Data Type
Oracle ILOM Value
The InstanceID property is a mandatory key property.

Within the scope of the instantiating namespace, InstanceID uniquely identifies an instance of this class. To ensure uniqueness within the namespace, the value of InstanceID should be constructed using the following preferred algorithm:



  • <OrgID> and <LocalID> are separated by a colon (:).

  • <OrgID> Must include a copyrighted, trademarked, or otherwise the unique name that is owned by the business entity creating or defining the InstanceID, or is a registered ID that is assigned to the business entity by a recognized global authority. (This is similar to the <Schema Name>_<Class Name> structure of Schema class names.)

  • <OrgID> must not contain a colon (:). When you use this algorithm, the first colon to appear in InstanceID must appear between <OrgID> and <LocalID>.

  • <LocalID> is chosen by the business entity and should not be re-used to identify different underlying (real-world) elements.

  • For DMTF defined instances, the preferred algorithm must be used with <OrgID> set to CIM.

If this preferred algorithm is not used, the defining entity must ensure that the resultant InstanceID is not re-used across any InstanceIDs produced by this or other providers for this instance's namespace.

Implementation dependent value representing unique ID.
A LogEntry can include a time stamp for the entry.
Appropriate value.
Textual description of the object.
SEL event description.
The ElementName property is a user-friendly name.

This property allows each instance to define a user-friendly name in addition to its key properties, identity data, and description information.

Note - The Name property of ManagedSystemElement is also defined as a user-friendly name. But it is often subclassed to be a key. It is not reasonable that the same property can convey both identity and a user-friendly name, without inconsistencies. Where Name exists and is not a key (such as for instances of LogicalDevice), the same information can be present in both the Name and ElementName properties.

SEL event record ID.
The string containing the log's InstanceID.
Implementation- dependent value representing unique ID of the associated Oracle_RecordLog.
The string containing the log's Name. This property is available for backward continuity with CIM_LogRecord.
Will have the value SEL Log.
A string containing LogRecord data. If the corresponding RecordFormat property is <empty>, or cannot be parsed according to the recommended format, RecordData should be interpreted as a free-form string. If the RecordFormat property contains parseable format information (as recommended in the RecordFormat Description qualifier), the RecordData string should be parsed in accordance with this format. In this case, RecordData should begin with the delimiter character, and this character should be used to separate substrings in the manner described. The RecordData string can then be parsed by the data consumer and appropriately typed.
Contents of the SEL event data.
A string describing the data structure of the information in the RecordData property. If the RecordFormat string is <empty>, RecordData should be interpreted as a free-form string. To describe the data structure of RecordData, the RecordFormat string should be constructed as follows:
  • The first character is a delimiter character and is used to parse the remainder of the string into sub-strings.

  • Each substring is separated by the delimiter character and should be in the form of a CIM property declaration (for example, data type and property name). This set of declarations can be used to interpret the similarly delimited RecordData property.

For example, using a * delimiter:

RecordFormat = "*string ThisDay*uint32 ThisYear*datetime SomeTime" can be used to interpret: RecordData = "*This is Friday*2002*20020807141000.000000-300".

Will have the format used for interpreting the RecordData property.
Provides a representation of log entry ordering or pointers and handles for log entries.
SEL event record ID.
