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 1.0.1 Changes
o Remove ipmimonitoring tool. Tool is now superseded by ipmi-sensors
and the new --output-sensor-state option.
o Support --output-event-state option for ipmi-sel to support SEL event
o All config-tools now support multi-channel configuration under
o Re-architect libipmimonitoring to support all defined IPMI sensor
types, OEM bitmasks, and OEM interpretations.
o Add SEL monitoring support to libipmimonitoring.
o Support new 'interpret' sub-library in libfreeipmi.
o Support interpretation rules for sensors when no states/events occur.
o Support interpretation rules for out of spec sensor states/events.
o Support interpretation rules for OEM sensors and events.
o Move all config files to /etc/freeipmi/. Support legacy config
files for backwards compatibility.
o Support serial keepalive in ipmiconsole to check if serial
connection has remained alive across system reboots.
o Create symlinks and manpage pointers for 'ipmi-power', 'ipmi-ping',
'rmcp-ping', 'ipmi-console', and 'ipmi-detect' to give some
additional consistency to the tool naming.
o Various documentation updates.
o Update to support DCMI 1.1.
o Update all licensing information to GPLv3.
