1 What: /sys/firmware/opal/dump 2 Date: Feb 2014 3 Contact: Stewart Smith <firstname.lastname@example.org> 4 Description: 5 This directory exposes interfaces for interacting with 6 the FSP and platform dumps through OPAL firmware interface. 7 8 This is only for the powerpc/powernv platform. 9 10 initiate_dump: When '1' is written to it, 11 we will initiate a dump. 12 Read this file for supported commands. 13 14 0xXX-0xYYYY: A directory for dump of type 0xXX and 15 id 0xYYYY (in hex). The name of this 16 directory should not be relied upon to 17 be in this format, only that it's unique 18 among all dumps. For determining the type 19 and ID of the dump, use the id and type files. 20 Do not rely on any particular size of dump 21 type or dump id. 22 23 Each dump has the following files: 24 id: An ASCII representation of the dump ID 25 in hex (e.g. '0x01') 26 type: An ASCII representation of the type of 27 dump in the format "0x%x %s" with the ID 28 in hex and a description of the dump type 29 (or 'unknown'). 30 Type '0xffffffff unknown' is used when 31 we could not get the type from firmware. 32 e.g. '0x02 System/Platform Dump' 33 dump: A binary file containing the dump. 34 The size of the dump is the size of this file. 35 acknowledge: When 'ack' is written to this, we will 36 acknowledge that we've retrieved the 37 dump to the service processor. It will 38 then remove it, making the dump 39 inaccessible. 40 Reading this file will get a list of 41 supported actions.
