Context

This command saves events from the Major Event Log to a file. You can save these events:

Note: Some storage arrays might not be able to support all four types of events.

Syntax

save storageArray (allEvents | criticalEvents | 
warningEvents | infoEvents | debugEvents) 
file="filename" 
[count=numberOfEvents] 
[forceSave=(TRUE | FALSE)]

Parameters

Parameter Description
allEvents The parameter to save all of the events to a file.
criticalEvents The parameter to save only the critical events to a file.
warningEvents The parameter to save only the warning events to a file.
infoEvents The parameter to save only the informational events to a file.
debugEvents The parameter to save only the debug events to a file.
file

The file path and the file name to which you want to save the events. Enclose the file name in double quotation marks (" "). For example:

file="C:\Program Files\CLI\logs\events.txt"

The default name of the file that contains the contents of the Major Event Log is major-event-log.txt. This command does not automatically append a file extension to the saved file. You must specify a file extension when entering the file name.

count The number of events that you want to save to a file. If you do not enter a value for the count, all events matching the type of event you specify are saved to the file. If you enter a value for the count, only that number of events (starting with the last event entered) are saved to the file. Use integer values.
forceSave The parameter to force saving the debug events you may have filtered from view to a file. To force saving the events, set this parameter to TRUE. The default value is FALSE.
Note: Using this parameter saves debug events that have been filtered out of the SANtricity Event Viewer.
