Class reference

Subclass of CIM_EnabledLogicalElement

Log represents any type of event, error or informational register or chronicle. The object describes the existence of the log and its characteristics. Log does not dictate the form of the data represented or how records/messages are stored in the log and/or accessed. Subclasses will define the appropriate methods and behavior.

Key properties

Local properties

uint64 MaxNumberOfRecords

Maximum number of records that can be captured in the Log. If undefined, a value of zero should be specified.

uint64 CurrentNumberOfRecords

Current number of records in the Log.

uint16 LogState

LogState is an integer enumeration that indicates the current state of a log represented by CIM_Log subclasses. LogState is to be used in conjunction with the EnabledState property to fully describe the current state of the log. The following text briefly summarizes the various log states:

Unknown (0) indicates the state of the log is unknown.

Normal (2) indicates that the log is or could be executing logging commands, will process any queued log entries, and will queue new logging requests.

Erasing (3) indicates that the log is being erased.

Not Applicable (4) indicates the log does not support representing a log state.

uint16 OverwritePolicy

OverwritePolicy is an integer enumeration that indicates whether the log, represented by the CIM_Log subclasses, can overwrite its entries.Unknown (0) indicates the log’s overwrite policy is unknown.

Wraps when Full (2) indicates that the log overwrites its entries with new entries when the log has reached its maximum capacity.

Never Overwrites (7) indicates that the log never overwrites its entries by the new entries.

Archives (8) indicates that the logging is never interupted, and the log archives old entries using an algorithm such as reaching a specific threshold on number of entries to archive a specific number of old ones to free space for new entries. The archived entries may not be readily retreived through the enumeration of log entries.

Local methods

uint32 ClearLog ()

Requests that the Log be cleared of all entries.

The return value should be 0 if the request was successfully executed, 1 if the request is not supported, and some other value, as indicated by the ValueMap/Values qualifiers, if an error occurred.

ValueMap Values
0 Completed with no error
1 Not Supported
2 Unspecified Error
3 Timeout
4 Failed
5 Invalid Parameter
6..0x0FFF DMTF_Reserved
0x1000..0x7FFF Method_Reserved
0x8000.. Vendor_Reserved
