Collects and decodes Machine Check Exception data
mcelog processes machine checks in particular memory and CPU hardware errors on modern x86-based Unix systems and produces human-readable output.
This software is heavily patched to work on FreeBSD systems, and thus provides an extremely limited subset of features as of this writing for example, daemon mode is not currently supported.
The primary purpose is to provide a way to decode MCE output from the FreeBSD kernel into something more human-readable using the command ‘mcelog –no-dmi –ascii’.
FreeBSD conversion patches were originally written by John Baldwin firstname.lastname@example.org and later incorporated into this port.
