Commands for managing a system at the SP admin privilege level

The SP commands at the admin privilege level enable you to display events, logs, and status information for system power, batteries, sensors, field-replaceable units (FRUs), or the SP itself. The commands also enable you to reboot the system or the SP and create a core dump.

The following SP commands are available at the admin privilege level:

Note: Some commands are platform-specific and might not be available on your platform.
