BMC and BlueField Logs
The BMC and BlueField-2 logs can be collected using openbmctool as BMC and system dump.
Two types of dump are supported:
BMC dump, which is a collection of logs from BMC
System dump, which is a collection of logs from BlueField-2. To create a system dump, users must provide the BlueField-2 credentials and IP address of the tmfifo_net0 network interface.
The following table lists BMC dump operations:

Download BMC dump
Downloads the user-specified BMC dump
Delete BMC dump
Deletes the user-specified dump on BMC
The following table lists system dump operations:
Create system dump

List system dumps

The downloaded dump tar must be extracted to get the logs for BMC or BlueField-2.
Upon creating a dump, please allow the system ~5 mins to prepare the dump. The created dump will appear on the dump list when the system finishes dump creation. The created dump can be downloaded from the BMC using the retrieve command.
