Just looking through a spcollect zip bundle and wondered why there were system, application and security .EVT files in there.

Also is there a list of the useful files in spcollect, I found ...getlog.txt in the ...sus folder had loads of  'Enclosure 0 Disk 10  (771) A host read or write command was aborted.' messages followed by the disk going offline until reseated so I'm well on the way to fixing this one :)

Depending on which Clariion is being discussed, Wikipedia says:

The Clariion is built on an Intel platform and has quite unique software layer: it runs two operating environments in parallel. Windows XP Embedded or stripped-down version of Windows Server for management and maintenance tasks and proprietary UNIX-based FLARE as an actual "data mover".  Embedded Windows (in the fourth generation this is 64-bit Windows Storage Server, the third generation used 32-bit Windows XP).

That would explain the crazy behaviour of the FLARE disks, the two OSs are probably using different RAID levels for different tasks.

Any idea as to what files have useful stuff in them? I'm particularly interested about things like disk errors and controller crashes.
