1. A method of monitoring an optoelectronic transceiver that includes an optoelectronic transmitter, an optoelectronic receiver, and memory;

  • comparing sensor values representative of operating conditions of the optoelectronic transceiver with corresponding limit values to generate flag values;

    storing the flag values in memory, the flag values comprising a first flag value and a second flag value associated with a respective operating condition, wherein the first flag value and a second flag value are associated with a shared memory address; and

    after storing the flag values;

    receiving, from a host external to the optoelectronic transceiver, a request for information associated with the respective operating condition, wherein the request includes the shared memory address; and

    responding to the host by sending flag values associated with the shared memory address, wherein the flag values sent to the host include at least the first flag value and the second flag value.
