Boot and console messages can be used to identify and fix problems. These messages are automatically stored on disk by AIX. To view the stored messages, use the alog command. Here are a couple examples of the alog command:
alog -L # List the defined log types alog -o -t boot # View the boot log alog -o -t console # View the console log
See the AIX documentation for more information on the alog command, as well as how to define your own log types.
