Product details and specifications

The Event Information Tools (EIT) display information about events generated on a remote system.

The EIT suite consists of the following:

  • Console Logger
    The Console Logger tool interacts with the Management Processor (MP), also called the Guardian Service Processor (GSP). The MP logs the command entered at a console, the response to the command, and the alert messages that are generated by a system.

    The Console Logger fetches this information from MP at an interval of 5 minutes, and logs the information in the Support Management Station (SMS).

    You can access the information logged in SMS from the following locations:
    • On an HP-UX 11i v1 system:
    • On a Windows system:
      C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\EIT\var\log\conslogd.log.
  • IPMI Log Acquirer
    The IPMI Log Acquirer tool obtains information about the Forward Progress Logs (FPL) present on a remote IPMI system.
  • IPMI Event Viewer
    The IPMI Event Viewer tool displays the low-level system log information, such as the status of a component, configuration of a processor, and so on.

The EIT suite supports the HPE Integrity SuperDome SMS workstations on the following platforms:

  • HP-UX 11.x (11.00, 11.11, 11.23)
  • Windows XP Professional
  • Windows 2000

Note: A single EIT software bundle can be used to install EIT on all the 3 versions of the HP-UX operating systems.


Each newer version incorporates improvements in the interface or functionality. The newer and enhanced versions support more hardware and different operating systems.
