Comlog

All FIM and FPM SMCs include a comlog system for writing and saving console log messages. When enabled, the comlog saves log messages in a local comlog file. Log messages include all local host console messages including BIOS boot up messages. In the comlog these messages include the following headers:

Header Cause
\n--- COMLOG SYSTEM BOOT: YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss ---\n The module is starting up after being powered on or reset.
\n--- COMLOG DISABLED: YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss ---\n Logging is disabled.
\n--- COMLOG ENABLED: YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss ---\n Logging is enabled
\n--- COMLOG TIME: YYYY/MM/DD hh:mm:ss ---\n This message is written every hour when the module is powered on and logging is enabled.
