All sense and status information stored in an I/O subsystem has in the past always been reset by I/O resets. A system reset, or selective reset, would previously reset any recorded information within a sub-system relative to a device or group of devices. This article teaches a subsystem that ignores RESET instructions to some accumulated sense or log data which reflects subsystem history.
