+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/reset_counters
+Date: January 2006
+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This write-only control file will zero all the statistical
+ counters for UE and CE errors on the given memory controller.
+ Zeroing the counters will also reset the timer indicating how
+ long since the last counter were reset. This is useful for
+ computing errors/time. Since the counters are always reset
+ at driver initialization time, no module/kernel parameter
+ is available.
+
+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/seconds_since_reset
+Date: January 2006
+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file displays how many seconds have elapsed
+ since the last counter reset. This can be used with the error
+ counters to measure error rates.
+

+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file displays the total count of uncorrectable
+ errors that have occurred on this memory controller. If
+ panic_on_ue is set, this counter will not have a chance to
+ increment, since EDAC will panic the system
+
+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/ue_noinfo_count

+Date: January 2006
+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file displays the total count of correctable
+ errors that have occurred on this memory controller. This
+ count is very important to examine. CEs provide early
+ indications that a DIMM is beginning to fail. This count
+ field should be monitored for non-zero values and report
+ such information to the system administrator.
+
+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/ce_noinfo_count
+Date: January 2006
+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file displays the number of CEs that
+ have occurred on this memory controller wherewith no
+ information as to which DIMM slot is having errors. Memory is
+ handicapped, but operational, yet no information is available
+ to indicate which slot the failing memory is in. This count

+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/sdram_scrub_rate
+Date: February 2007
+Contact: linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: Read/Write attribute file that controls memory scrubbing.
+ The scrubbing rate used by the memory controller is set by
+ writing a minimum bandwidth in bytes/sec to the attribute file.
+ The rate will be translated to an internal value that gives at
+ least the specified rate.
+ Reading the file will return the actual scrubbing rate employed.
+ If configuration fails or memory scrubbing is not implemented,
+ the value of the attribute file will be -1.

+Date: April 2012
+Contact: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
+ linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file displays the information about the last
+ available memory slot in this memory controller. It is used by
+ userspace tools in order to display the memory filling layout.

+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/(dimm|rank)*/size
+Date: April 2012
+Contact: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
+ linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file will display the size of dimm or rank.
+ For dimm*/size, this is the size, in MB of the DIMM memory
+ stick. For rank*/size, this is the size, in MB for one rank
+ of the DIMM memory stick. On single rank memories (1R), this
+ is also the total size of the dimm. On dual rank (2R) memories,
+ this is half the size of the total DIMM memories.

+Contact: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
+ linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This attribute file will display what type of Error detection
+ and correction is being utilized. For example: S4ECD4ED would
+ mean a Chipkill with x4 DRAM.
+
+What: /sys/devices/system/edac/mc/mc*/(dimm|rank)*/dimm_label
+Date: April 2012
+Contact: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
+ linux-edac@vger.kernel.org
+Description: This control file allows this DIMM to have a label assigned
+ to it. With this label in the module, when errors occur
+ the output can provide the DIMM label in the system log.
+ This becomes vital for panic events to isolate the
+ cause of the UE event.
+ DIMM Labels must be assigned after booting, with information
+ that correctly identifies the physical slot with its
+ silk screen label. This information is currently very
+ motherboard specific and determination of this information
+ must occur in userland at this time.

+Description: This attribute file will display what type of memory is
+ currently on this csrow. Normally, either buffered or
