IPMI Overview

Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a message-based hardware management interface that enables remote monitoring, management, and recovery capabilities, regardless of the status of the server. It defines a set of interfaces that are common to computer hardware and firmware that you can use to monitor system health and manage the system.

IPMI operates independently of the operating system (OS) and allows you to manage a system remotely even in the absence of the OS or the system management software, or even if the monitored system is not powered on. IPMI can also function when the OS has started.

IPMI version 2.0 and later can send out alerts by means of a direct serial connection, a LAN, or a serial over LAN (SOL) connection to a remote client. You can then query controller status, review hardware logs, or issue other requests from a remote console through the same connections.
