Log validation tool at the HMC.

When LPM fails, the logs are collected by defauly. Also they can be collected by the pedbg tool with option to collect various logs. 

Once the logs are collected and uploaded, there could be some logs missing due to various reasons.

In HMC after log collection, if we run a tool on the collected logs, should tell all the logs are present or some are missing. 

If missing logs, additional commands or helps can be provided. (for example command for collecting snap on VIOS if its missing in the logs)

    Hi Santosh,

    There is a command migrdbg which can be used to collect LPM specific logs and an option is provided to enable automatic data collection on failure. Can you provide more info on if you have tried that option and missing log collection options for LPM failure?
