Fault Management Log Files

The Fault Manager daemon records information in several log files.

  • Error events. The errlog log file records error telemetry consisting of ereports.

  • Informational events.

    • The infolog_hival log file records high-value ireports.

    • The infolog log file records all other informational ireports.

  • Diagnosis events. The fltlog log file records fault, defect, and alert diagnosis events.

The log files are stored in /var/fm/fmd. To view these log files, use the fmdump command. See Example 3, fmdump Fault Reports. See the fmdump(8) man page for more information.

Tip  -  Base your administrative action on output from the fmadm list command. Log files output by the fmdump command can contain old diagnosis events and ereports or ireports that are not associated with any current diagnosis.

See Displaying Fault, Defect, and Alert Information for information about using the fmadm list command.

The log files are automatically rotated. See the logadm(8) man page for more information.
