nvme-error-log - Send NVME Error log page request, return result and log

nvme error-log <device>  [--log-entries=<entries> | -e <entries>]

[--raw-binary | -b]
[--output-format=<fmt> | -o <fmt>]

Retrieves NVMe Error log page from an NVMe device and provides the returned structure.

The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0), or a namespace block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1).

On success, the returned error log structure may be returned in one of several ways depending on the option flags; the structure may parsed by the program and printed in a readable format or the raw buffer may be printed to stdout for another program to parse.

-e <entries>, --log-entries=<entries>

Specifies how many log entries the program should request from the device. This must be at least one, and shouldn’t exceed the device’s capabilities. Defaults to 64 log entries.

-b, --raw-binary

Print the raw error log buffer to stdout.

-o <format>, --output-format=<format>

Set the reporting format to normal, json, or binary. Only one output format can be used at a time.

•Get the error log and print it in a human readable format:
# nvme error-log /dev/nvme0
•Print the raw output to a file:
# nvme error-log /dev/nvme0 --raw-binary > error_log.raw

It is probably a bad idea to not redirect stdout when using this mode.
