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.
