filterlog - Logs and reports system Correctable Read Data
(CRD) memory errors on specific systems.
/usr/sbin/filterlog [-l] [-d crdlog] [-d crdlifetime] [-s
crdlength #] [-s crdcount #] [-h]
Logs or filters an entry from stdin. This option is used
by the binary event-log daemon, binlogd. Dumps the contents
of the CRD log file in text format. Errors shown in
the file are those recorded by the system since the last
boot. Dumps the CRD lifetime log information in text format.
Used to set the CRD interval time in minutes. The
default is 24 hours. Used to set the CRD interval count.
The default is 50. Prints a list of the command option
options defined in this reference page.
This utility ensures that only genuine memory errors are
reported to system log files on certain system types. The
command filterlog is called directly by the binary eventlog
daemon, binlogd to filter system CRD (memory hardware)
errors. CRD errors are logged according to user-definable
parameters. If it is determined that a genuine memory
problem exists, an entry is passed to binlogd. The error
will then be written to the system's error log file and
can be notified to the user through DECevent.
The filterlog utility uses two variables to determine if a
CRD error signifies a genuine memory hardware problem --
crdlength and crdcount. If crdcount number of errors occur
during crdlength minutes, an entry is passed to binlogd.
The default settings are 50 errors in 24 hours (1440 minutes).
The filterlog utility reads the /etc/binlog.conf file to
determine what log file should be used to record any
events. The default log file is /usr/adm/binary.crdlog.
Commands: binlogd(8), dia(8) (DECevent)
