IPMI Defines Common Interfaces to Monitor Server Health
The white paper describes the intelligent platform management interface (IPMI), which defines common interfaces to intelligent hardware that is used to monitor server physical health characteristics, such as temperature, voltage, fans, power supplies, and chassis intrusion.
IPMI includes other system management capabilities that... help drive down the total cost of ownership, including automatic alerting, automatic system shutdown and restart, remote restart and power control capabilities, and asset tracking.
New remote management interfaces in IPMI, V1.5, facilitate the management of rack-mount Internet servers and systems in remote environments.
