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]
-l 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.
-s crdlength #
Used to set the CRD interval time in minutes. The default is 24 hours.
-s crdcount #
Used to set the CRD interval count. The default is 50.
-h Prints a list of the command option options defined in this reference
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 event-log daemon, binlogd to filter system CRD (memory
hardware) errors. CRD errors are logged according to user-definable parame-
ters. 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 signi-
fies 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
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
