Additional Hardware Interface Service Commands 

The Hardware Interface Service (HISRV) feature provides some additional commands available to you for displaying supplemental information. They are:

SH HWITOP - Shows HMC topology (entities).

SH HWIDT   - Shows HMC data types.

SH HWIET   - Shows HMC entities in detail.

SH HWIAT   - Shows HMC entity attributes.

SH HWIEV   - Shows the HMC event list.

These commands are entered as console modify commands issued against the HISRV started task name, for example:

F hisrv,SH HWIAT

where "hisrv" is the HISRV started task name.
