What is IPMI?

The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) specification
defines a set of interfaces for platform management.  It is
implemented by a large number of hardware manufacturers to support
system management on motherboards. The features of IPMI that most
users will be interested in are sensor monitoring (i.e. CPU
temperatures, fan speeds), remote power control, and serial-over-LAN

What is FreeIPMI?

FreeIPMI provides in-band and out-of-band IPMI software based on the
IPMI v1.5/2.0 specification.  FreeIPMI provides tools and libraries
for users to access and read IPMI sensor readings, system event log
(SEL) entries, serial-over-LAN (SOL), remote power control functions,
field replaceable unit (FRU) device information, and more.  More
information about FreeIPMI can be found at the FreeIPMI webpage at:

Release 1.1.1 Changes

o Support new tool ipmi-pet, tool to parse/interpret platform event
o Support new --sdr-cache-file option specify specific SDR cache file
  in all SDR related tools (ipmi-sensors, ipmi-sel, ipmi-fru, etc.).
o In ipmi-fru, do not consider a busy device a fatal error. 
o In ipmi-sensors, support 'ignoreauthcode' workaround option.
o In ipmi-sensors, support Quanta QSSC-S4R/Appro GB812X-CN OEM SDRs
  and sensors.
o In ipmi-sel, support Quanta QSSC-S4R/Appro GB812X-CN OEM SEL events.
o In ipmi-sel, fix several OEM specific event output bugs.
o In ipmi-pef-config, fix configuration bug for
o In ipmi-raw, for file/stdin input, output line number when there is
  an error.
o Update libfreeipmi for DCMI 1.5 additions.
o Update libfreeipmi fru-parse sub-library to support FRU parsing
  without an IPMI connection.
o In libfreeipmi, support IPMI_FLAGS_NOSESSION flag to open a context
  for IPMI communication w/o establishing a session.
o In libfreeipmi, support IPMI_FLAGS_NO_LEGAL_CHECK flag, to
  workaround motherboards to may return illegal IPMI packets.
o In libfreeipmi, support IPMI_FLAGS_IGNORE_AUTHENTICATION_CODE flag,
  to workaround specific situations where motherboards return
  incorrectly generated authentication codes.
o In libfreeipmi fru-parse sub-library, support
o In libfreeipmi, add support for IPMI firmware firewall and command
  discovery payloads.
o In libfreeipmi, support Quanta QSSC-S4R/Appro GB812X-CN OEM SEL
o Fix various macro names (typos, invalid naming, etc.)
