Hexidecimal Event Data on a DS-24M2

When looking at the event logs on a DS-24M2 the Event Data is "The 32-byte hexidecimal description of the event in words."

Is there a document which describes how to decode this 32-byte hexidecimal description ?

Here is the example:


Show> eventLog
Date / Time       Code  Severity  FRU       Event Data                        
----------------  ----  --------  --------  -----------------------------------

10/02/09 12:27P   514   Major     CTP-0     07FF00FF 00002920 34393350 39333820 20202020 20202020 FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF

I see that code 514 == SFP/XFP optics failure. But how can I read the Event Data ?

Re: Hexidecimal Event Data on a DS-24M2

here as example about Code 514

Event Code: 514

Message: SFP optical transceiver failure.

Severity: Major.

Explanation: An SFP optical transceiver in a UPM card failed. The amber LED corresponding to the port illuminates to indicate the failure. Other ports remain operational if their LEDs are extinguished.

Action: Replace the failed transceiver with a functional transceiver of the same type.

Event Data: Byte 0 = port number (00 through 63).

                    Byte 1 = engineering reason code.

                    Bytes 4 -7 = elapsed millisecond tick count.
