Entity 34
EventSensorType 15
EventSourceType 104
EventSeverity 1
SensorNumber 255

If we check with internet explorer it will display in this form

Event Time Source Description

Hello
You can refer to the Platform Event Trap Format Specification http://www.intel.com/design/servers/ipmi/spec.htm

Also if you download the DTK Sample Code
http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-version-of-manageability-developer-tool...
you will find some code with the Event Sensor Type, Source Type, etc already mapped into text.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the forum. All of the event logs generated by Intel AMT are in conformance to the IPMI standard and the format is defined in the specifications pointed out by the link in the previous message.

Hi,

I had the same problem some time ago. The IPMI specification is quite large and you will spend some time going through it. I made a bried summary in this forum of how to achieve this using the intel DTK, please use the following link to see my solution:
