The servicelog packages provides a library for logging service-related events to the servicelog database, and a number of command-line utilities for viewing the contents of the database. The concept of a serviceable event is introduced; if an event occurs that requires a service action to repair (such as a hardware failure that requires the replacement of a Field Replaceable Unit (FRU), or an issue that requires a firmware update to fix), the event is considered serviceable. When a repair action occurs (such as the replacement of a FRU), all of the open serviceable events that are repaired by that action are considered to be "closed".

Building servicelog
The libservicelog and servicelog packages are downloadable as source tarballs. After downloading and uncompressing the tarballs, change to the source directory (either servicelog-release or libservicelog-release), run ./configure, and then make install. You may also build a binary RPM in the usual way.
