NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       evminfo - Provides information about EVM

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       evminfo  -lc   |  -vp  | -verify verify_option [-file verify_file]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Reads the EVM channel  configuration  file,  /etc/evmchannel.conf,
  and  writes  a list of all the configured event
       channels.  You  can  review  the  events   available   for
       retrieval through a particular set of channels by invoking
       evmget with the -C option.  Writes a string  that  can  be
       used as the first two components (by convention the vendor
       and product components)  of  a  system  event  name.  This
       option enables script writers to refer to system events in
       a way that is independent of the host system.  You  should
       use  this facility if you are writing a script that in the
       future may be used on other platforms  that  support  EVM,
       and  whose  system  events  may  have  a different prefix.
       Checks the syntax of the EVM configuration file  specified
       by verify_option. Valid values for verify_option are auth,
       daemon, logger or chmgr, to verify the EVM  authorization,
       the EVM daemon, the EVM logger or the EVM channel configuration
 files respectively. If a verify_file  is  specified
       the named file is checked instead of the component's standard
 configuration file.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The evminfo command writes selected information about  the
       EVM  environment  to  its standard out stream. The options
       determine the information to be displayed.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
  An error occurred.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       In  the  following  example, the evminfo -lc command lists
       the names of all event  channels  configured  in  the  EVM
       channel configuration file, and the user invokes evmget to
       retrieve events  from  two  of  the  listed  channels.   $
       evminfo  -lc  syslog  binlog misclog evmlog $ evmget -A -C
       misclog,evmlog This example illustrates the use of evminfo
       -vp  in  a  shell script to determine the first two components
 (by convention, the vendor and  product  components)
       of  the  names  of  system  events in the host system. The
       script  then  uses  evmwatch  to  monitor  system  events.
       VP=`evminfo  -vp`  evmwatch  -f "[name $VP]" | evmshow The
       following example checks the syntax of the EVM daemon configuration
 file.  evminfo -verify daemon

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

 file.  The EVM logger configuration file.
