The server and its accompanying software and firmware contain diagnostic tools and features that can help you isolate component problems, monitor the status of a functioning system, and exercise one or more subsystems to disclose more subtle or intermittent hardware-related problems. The selection of diagnostic tools available for your server includes a chronological event log (Oracle ILOM System Log), standalone software packages, firmware-based tests, and hardware-based LED indicators.
Each diagnostic tool has its own specific strength and application. Review the tools listed in this section and determine which tool might be best to use for your situation. Once you have determined the tool to use, you can access it locally, while at the server, or remotely.
