WheaReportHwErrorDeviceDriver function

To report a hardware error, the driver calls the WheaReportHwErrorDeviceDriver function.

Syntax

NTSTATUS WheaReportHwErrorDeviceDriver(
  ULONG               ErrorSourceId,
  PDEVICE_OBJECT      DeviceObject,
  PUCHAR              ErrorData,
  ULONG               ErrorDataLength,
  LPGUID              SectionTypeGuid,
  WHEA_ERROR_SEVERITY ErrorSeverity,
  PUCHAR              DeviceFriendlyName
);

Parameters

ErrorSourceId

The error source ID WHEA provided when it called the _WHEA_ERROR_SOURCE_INITIALIZE_DEVICE_DRIVER callback.

DeviceObject

A pointer to the device object associated with the error condition.

ErrorData

The buffer containing the driver's hardware error data. This information is hardware-specific, and must not exceed the MaxRawDataLength that the driver provided to WheaAddErrorSourceDeviceDriver .

ErrorDataLength

A value of type ULONG specifying the size, in bytes, of the error data.

SectionTypeGuid

Specifies what type of error data is being reported. This may be, but is not required to be, one of the GUIDs defined in the Appendix N of the UEFI Specification, in which case the error information matches one of the specified section types. The caller can also create a GUID and private section format.

ErrorSeverity

An enumeration value of type WHEA_ERROR_SEVERITY specifying the severity of the error condition.

DeviceFriendlyName

An optional string up to 20 bytes in length (including NULL terminator) that describes the device associated with the error condition. This information is copied into the resulting WHEA error record and is informational only. The intent is to place this information in the error record so when event logs are created a consumer can easily troubleshoot device problems.

Return Value

This function method returns STATUS_SUCCESS or an appropriate error code.
