SERVER MANAGEMENT DEFINITION (continued): … Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a specification for the equipment that monitors the physical environment and behavior of a computer hardware server. The specification, developed jointly by Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and NEC, is intended to cover the regulation of temperature, voltage, and power, and to ensure the proper operation of the firmware. IPMI works with hardware servers regardless of the operating platform or other software they may run. IPMI allows an administrator to manage multiple servers from a single location by means of a user-friendly interface. Critical system events for each server can be logged. Settings for each basic input/output system (BIOS) can be monitored or changed. Servers can be remotely and independently powered on or off, rebooted, or reset as necessary.
