The Info fields have a fixed pattern in content. The first field is the name of the process that sends the message. This field can be left blank when certain versions of Syslog protocols are used.

Information in <> represents the prefix of the Syslog protocol, which is stipulated by the Syslog protocol and indicates the severity level and source.

Info contains the array alarm information.
  • Time when an alarm occurs, for example, 2015-06-19 10:57:50.
  • IP address or device SN. It represents the IP address or SN of the storage device that generates an alarm.
  • Alarm SN. It represents the SN generated within the storage device. The value ranges from 1 to 4294967295, for example 240788.
  • Alarm ID. It represents a type of alarm in hexadecimal format, for example, 0xF00A000C.
  • Alarm severity. Alarm severity includes info, warning, major, and critical.
  • Alarm type. Alarm types include event (0), fault (1), and resume (2).
  • Alarm content. For example, the Licence feature (xxx) is going to expire on 2015-08-14.
    If an alarm is a resume alarm, the time that an alarm is cleared will be displayed after the time when the alarm occurs, for example, 2015-06-19 10:57:50.
Info Receive Time, Facility, and Severity are defined by the Syslog server. Different tools may parse them in different perspectives and the results may be different.
