NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       filterlog  - Logs and reports system Correctable Read Data
       (CRD) memory errors on specific systems.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/filterlog [-l] [-d crdlog] [-d crdlifetime]  [-s
       crdlength #] [-s crdcount #] [-h]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.
