_WHEA_GENERIC_ERROR_DESCRIPTOR structure

The WHEA_GENERIC_ERROR_DESCRIPTOR structure describes a generic error source.

Syntax

typedef struct _WHEA_GENERIC_ERROR_DESCRIPTOR {
  USHORT                       Type;
  UCHAR                        Reserved;

  UCHAR                        ErrStatusAddressSpaceID;
  UCHAR                        ErrStatusAddressBitWidth;
  UCHAR                        ErrStatusAddressBitOffset;
  UCHAR                        ErrStatusAddressAccessSize;

Members

Type

The type of error source descriptor. This member is always set to WHEA_ERROR_SOURCE_DESCRIPTOR_TYPE_GENERIC.

Reserved

Reserved for system use.

Enabled

A Boolean value that indicates if the error source is enabled.

ErrStatusBlockLength

The size, in bytes, of the block of error status registers that contain the error data for the error source.

RelatedErrorSourceId

The identifier of the related error source. If the generic error source does not relate back to another error source, this member is not used.

ErrStatusAddressSpaceID

The address space of the address that is specified in the ErrStatusAddress member. Possible values are:

0x00

System memory space

0x01

System I/O space

0x02

PCI configuration space

0x03

Embedded controller address space

0x04

System management bus (SMBus) address space

0x05 - 0x7E

Reserved

0x7F

Functional fixed hardware address space

0x80 - 0xBF

Reserved

0xC0 - 0xFF

OEM defined address space

ErrStatusAddressBitWidth

The size, in bits, of the register at the address that is specified in the ErrStatusAddress member.

ErrStatusAddressBitOffset

The offset, in bits, of the register at the address that is specified in the ErrStatusAddress member.

ErrStatusAddressAccessSize

The access size for reading the register at the address that is specified in the ErrStatusAddress member. Possible values are:

0

Undefined

1

Byte access

2

Word access

3

Double word access

4

Quad word access

ErrStatusAddress

The 64-bit address of a register that contains the physical address of a block of memory that contains the error status data for the error source. This block of memory must reside in firmware reserved memory so that it is not reclaimed by the operating system's memory manager. The error status data contained in this block of memory is described by a WHEA_GENERIC_ERROR structure.

Notify

A WHEA_NOTIFICATION_DESCRIPTOR structure that describes the notification mechanism that is used by the error source.

Remarks

A WHEA_GENERIC_ERROR_DESCRIPTOR structure is contained within the WHEA_ERROR_SOURCE_DESCRIPTOR structure.

Windows version Supported in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista SP1, and later versions of Windows. Supported in Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista SP1, and later versions of Windows.
