That feature doesn't exist in ndctl. Intel has developed some tools that are
mostly specific to their NVDIMMs and those tools include a monitoring daemon as
well as a CLI.
Though I tried to compile this tools, I could not comple it, and
I gave up to solve too many dependency...
One approach could be to contribute changes to make those tools more useful for non-Intel
Hmmm, ixpdimm_sw seems to be too large software.
In my first impression, I don't think this is good way..... :(
Another approach could be to integrate NVDIMM event
monitoring into some other utility, like the rasdaemon. I'm interested in
Though I'm not sure which (existing or new) utility is appropriate yet.
I prefer this way. So, I'll think about it.

If your company is part of the UEFI Forum then I think you can participate in
the ACPI working group. There is a sub-team focused on standardizing NVDIMM
FW/SW interfaces. My suggestion is that you find the person in your company
who can hook you up with the right group.
Ok, I'll try to find the contact person in my company.
You'll also see conversation/debate about what ought to be a standard
on this mailing list so input here is welcome too.
Thank you for your information.
