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 1.2.6 Changes
o Support HP Proliant DL160 G8 OEM sensors.
o Support Supermicro X9SCM-iiF OEM sensors and events.
o Support output of temperature sampling period to ipmi-dcmi.
o Clarify error message when SOL session cannot be stolen in
o Fix dcmi rolling average time period output error
o Fix ipmi-dcmi output errors with --get-dcmi-sensor-info.
o Fix corner case in calculation of confidentiality pad length with
  AES-CBC-128 encryption.  Incorrect pad effects some vendor firmware
o Send IPMI 2.0 packets differently than IPMI 1.5 packets, as the
  former does not require legacy pad data to be appended to payloads.
o Fix Intel OEM SEL buffer overflow.
o Fix out of trunk source build.

o Support new ipmi_rmcpplus_sendto() and ipmi_rmcpplus_recvfrom()
o Support new HP Proliant DL160 G8 OEM sensor events.
