Some questions about the handler of Add SEL Entry Command

I don’t think this command is even supported completely by IPMID, I think it was started with only one type and never got to completion.

Subject: Some questions about the handler of Add SEL Entry Command

Hi Tom,

Our validation team met a problem in phosphor-host-ipmid (phosphor-ipmi-host) recently. We want to use the Add SEL Entry Command handled by ipmiStorageAddSEL. We look forward to getting correct sel log with parameter we offer. But We found that the handler only use sensortype to create log entry when recordType is equal to procedureType(0xDE). Why the other parameter is ignored to create log entry ? It seemed that it did’t follow the ipmi spec. There are more questions. What is the eSEL ? In function createProcedureLogEntry(), what information was stored in the eSELFile (/tmp/esel) ? And how to create the eSELFile ?
