NAME

  evmviewer - View events

SYNOPSIS

  Opening the viewer as	a process:

  /usr/share/sysman/menu/tasks/evmviewer/evmviewer [-ui	ui_mode] [-display
  display_name]	[-filter filter_expr] [-host hostname[:port_no]]... [-input
  logfile]

  Opening the viewer using the SysMan Menu:

  /usr/sbin/sysman -menu  "View	events"	[-ui ui_mode] [-display	display_name]
  [-filter filter_expr]	[-host hostname[:port_no]]... [-input logfile]

  Opening the viewer using a SysMan Menu accelerator:

  /usr/sbin/sysman [-accel] event_viewer [-ui  ui_mode]	[-display
  display_name]	[-filter  filter_expr] [-host hostname[:port_no]]... [-input
  logfile]

OPTIONS

  -ui ui_mode
      Specifies	the user interface to be invoked. The choices are:

      cui     Specifies	command	line interface.

      gui     Specifies	graphical user interface.

  -display display_name
      Specifies	the display screen on which evmviewer displays its window. If
      the display option is not	specified, the display screen specified	by
      the DISPLAY environment variable is used.	 The display_name variable
      has the format hostname:number. The default is :0. For more informa-
      tion, see	the X(1) reference page.

  -filter filter_expr
      Initializes the display only with	events which match the filter_expr.
      See the EvmFilter(5) reference page for the syntax of filter_expr.

  -host	hostname[:port_no]
      Attempts to connect to the EVM daemon on the host	hostname, rather than
      to the local daemon.

      This option may be repeated to obtain events from	several	hosts. If the
      name of the local	host is	included, a remote connection to the local
      daemon is	made.

      If specified, use	port_no	for TCP	communication with remote clients. If
      not specified, use the evm port number found in /etc/services. If	not
      specified, and no	entry is found in /etc/services, use the reserved
      value of 619.

  -input logfile
      Retrieve events from the file logfile rather than	from the event logs.

  When operating in the	gui mode, the evmviewer	application also supports all
  of the standard options described in the X(1)	reference page.
