Intelligent Platform Management Interface Computer applications
Intelligent Platform Management Interface. A self-contained hardware technology available on HP ProLiant DL145 servers that enables remote management of any node within a system.
The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) is a hardware level interface specification that defines a common, abstracted, message-based interface to platform monitoring and control functions. As a hardware-level interface, it sits at the bottom of a typical management software stack. Thus, IPMI is "management software neutral." It can be exposed through any standard management software interface, such as WMI, CIM, SNMP or DMI.
Intelligent platform management interface, a set of APIs used to manage servers. Functions include monitoring environmental data such as temperature, voltage, fans, and chassis switches, as well as alerting, remote console and control, and asset tracking.

Abbreviation for Intelligent Platform Management Interface, which is a part of systems management technology.
