"Hardware Events" attributes were added to HMC base monitoring agent as part of enhancement 215857 and shipped in interim fix level 6.2.
"Hardware Events" gather data from the HMC through SSH using "lssvcevents" command. The PH monitoring agent does not perform any calculations or other operations on the values returned by "lssvcevents", they are provided as-is.
Example showing equivalent "lssvcevents" command that is used to provide the "Severity" information:
If there are any questions on the values displayed for "Hardware Events" attributes in a TEP workspace, compare the output in the workspace view with the results returned from running the equivalent "lssvcevents" command from a command prompt.
HMC Base -> Managed Environment -> Hardware Events:
"lssvcevents" command output:
lssvcevents -t hardware -F 'pro
