       evmpost - post events to the EVM daemon

       msg priority]] | [filename|

       The  command  takes a file or stream of text event sources as input and
       converts them to binary EVM events.  By default, the command then posts
       them to the EVM daemon for distribution.

       If the option is specified, writes the EVM events to its stream instead
       of posting them to the daemon.  By default, attempts to retrieve	 event
       template	 information from the EVM daemon and merges the template items
       and environmental items such as and into the  output  events.   If  the
       option  is  used, the output events contain only the items specified in
       the source.

       An event source may contain any number of events.  Each event is speci‐
       fied  in	 the  manner  shown.   See  the EvmEvent(5) manpage for a more
       detailed explanation.

       The command recognizes the following data items in an event source:


       All EVM variable types may be specified except for Refer to EvmEvent(5)
       for details on data items and variables.

       In  the event source, each keyword must be accompanied by a correspond‐
       ing value.  The value must be enclosed in double quotes ("") if it con‐
       tains  white  space.  The data item keywords that are specified outside
       the event body are taken as global values.  The data item keywords  are
       included	 in each of the following events which do not have an explicit
       value defined for that keyword.

       Comments are  indicated	by  a  leading	character.   Blank  lines  are

       The  command  builds an EVM event containing the items that are explic‐
       itly specified in the source.  If the event is posted or if the	option
       is  specified  without  additional  environmental items such as the and
       template items are inserted into the event automatically.

       The rules for posting an event are more stringent  than	those  for  an
       event  simply to exist.	Therefore, may display an error when trying to
       post an an event that cannot be posted, even though the same source  is
       accepted when using the option.

       For example, do not post an event if it does not contain a name with at
       least three components because the daemon rejects it.  However, such an
       event can exist, and can create it and pass it to The following example
       fails because it does not contain a name:

       The following example is successful, even though it  does  not  display
       any useful information:

       The  option  can	 verify	 event source and template files by piping the
       output into See evmshow(1).

       Does not post the events, but instead passes them directly to
		 as raw EVM events.

		 An error occurs if is directed to a terminal device.

       When used with the
		 option, causes event template items and environmental	values
		 to  be merged with the items included in the source.  This is
		 the default mode.

       When used with the
		 option, inhibits the merging of template items	 and  environ‐
		 mental values.

       Posts an administrator's quick message event with the name
		 and  the  string  msg	in a variable data item.  If a message
		 contains spaces, the message must be  enclosed	 in  quotation
		 marks	("").  The event is used to add a message entry in the
		 event log.  This option may be used only by privileged users.

       Posts a user's quick message event with the name
		 and the string msg in a variable data	item.	If  a  message
		 contains  spaces,  the	 message must be enclosed in quotation
		 marks ("").  The event is used to add a message entry in  the
		 event log.

       Assigns	 priority  as  the for an administrator's or user's quick mes‐
		 sage.	The priority value must be an  integer	in  the	 range
		 0-700.	  If the priority is not specified, the default of 200
		 is used.

       filename	 Read event sources from filename.  If filename is omitted, or
		 is specified as event sources are read from

       The following exit values are returned:

       Successful completion.
       An error occurred.

       ·  The  following example posts an event, provided that a template file
	  containing an event with a matching name has	been  registered  with
	  the EVM daemon.

       ·  The  following  example  interprets an event template file, and dis‐
	  plays a dump of the contents of each	event.	 Environmental	items,
	  such	as  a  timestamp, are not merged into the event.  This command
	  checks the syntax and contents of the file.

       ·  The following example shows how is used in a shell script to	signal
	  completion of some operation:

       ·  The following example must be run as to post an administrator's mes‐
	  sage event.

       ·  The following example posts a quick user's message.

       ·  This example posts an event that includes a variable.

	  If the template for this event contains the  following  format  data

	  then displays this event as:

       The command rejects attempts to output raw events to a terminal device.

       Post  only  events  for	which  you have posting authorization, and for
       which a template exists.
