System Component Information

The Octaire displays system information in its splash screen for diagnostic purposes. The information indicates the current status and well-beingfor five of the system’s components.

FIG. 45 Example of a default Octaire splash screen

Command entered to display minimal information for each system component

The system component’s identity numbers are to the left of each component

The splash screen* can be accessed using a terminal emulation program, such as HyperTerminal

(see page 26). One of four verbosity settings is specified to provide a level of detail for information on five system components. Verbosity (i.e., wordiness) refers to the amount of information provided; the higher the verbosity setting, the more information is displayed. Only one verbosity setting and one component setting can be entered in a command. The order in which these two settings are entered is interchangeable.

Note: In amulti-enclosuresystem, the splash screen displays information only for the enclosure that is connected directly to the PC.

* AMX reserves the right to add to the contents of the splash screen at any time, without notice.

Verbosity Settings

The verbosity (v) settings (v0,v1,v2,v3) correspond to the level of detail that will be displayed, withv0 being the lowest level of detail andv3 being the highest level. Thev3 setting is not supported for the “all components” setting. The commands~scr! or~scri0v#! will access the lowest level of detail (verbosity) for all components. The command~scri#v#! will display higher levels of detail depending on the values entered for the verbosity settings.

Note: The “all components” setting (0) will display the lowest level of detail no matter which verbosity setting is used.

Component Settings

Detailed information for a single system component can be specified by using its identity (i) number setting (i0 throughi4 andi7) in the following table. The “all components” setting (i0) will display the lowest level of detail no matter which verbosity setting is used.

General Rules for Octaire Diagnostic Commands

In a multi-enclosuresystem, the splash screen displays information only for the enclosure that is connected directly to the PC

If the verbosity setting is omitted, the verbosity level will be the lowest (v0)

The component setting must be included; otherwise, entering any of the verbosity settings alone will result in a display equivalent to i0v0

If both settings are omitted during a query (~scr!), the information displayed will be at the lowest verbosity level for all components (i0v0)

At system boot, the information for an scri1v0! command is displayed

To access the lowest level of verbosity for all components:

1.Enter ~scr! or~scri0v#! (# = any verbosity setting)

To access a specific level of verbosity for a specific component:

2.Enter ~scri#v# where the first# is the component (identity) setting and the second# is the verbosity setting (either may be specified first).

All combinations are valid except for v3i0, which is not supported.

3.Enter ! (to send the command).

Example:~scrv3i7! or~scri7v3! (displays the highest level of detail for the system sensors).
