ACPIDUMP(1)                 General Commands Manual                ACPIDUMP(1)



NAME
       acpidump - ACPI table dump utility

SYNOPSIS
       acpidump [<option>...]


DESCRIPTION
       This manual page briefly documents the acpidump command.  The option
       list is taken from the interactive help.

       The acpidump command extracts the ACPI tables currently in use from the
       running kernel in a form usable for later processing by the acpixtract
       command.

       Invocation of acpidump without parameters will dump all available ACPI
       tables.  Multiple mixed instances of the -a , -f , and -n parameters
       can be used.


OPTIONS
       -b     Dump tables in binary format (versus the default human-readable
              form)


       -h | -?
              Display this help message


       -o <file>
              Redirect output to a file.  This file can be used later by
              acpixtract to examine the contents of the ACPI tables.


       -s     Print table summaries only.


       -v     Print the version of this utility.


       -z     Verbose mode.


       -a <address>
              Get a table from a physical address (must be superuser and you
              must be careful which address you use -- dmesg will typically
              report the addresses for the various tables).


       -f <binary-file>
              Get a table from a binary file (see the -b option).


       -n <signature>
              Get a table via it's name or signature (e.g., MADT or SSDT).
