Checks the syntax of the EVM configuration file specified by
verify_option. Valid values for verify_option are to verify

· In the following example, the command lists the names of all event
channels configured in the EVM channel configuration file, and then
retrieves events from two of the listed channels.
· This example illustrates using in a shell script. It determines the
first two components of the names of system events in the host sys‐
The script then uses to monitor system events.
· The following example checks the syntax of the EVM daemon configura‐
