Complex IPMI management software
OpenIPMI was designed to aid building “complex IPMI management software”. OpenIPMI library will connect with an IPMI controller, detect any management controllers on the bus, get their SDRs, manage all the entities in the system, manage the event log, and a host of other things. OpenIPMI is also dynamic and event-driven. It will come up and start discovering things in the managed system. As it discovers things, it will report them to the software using it assuming the software has asked for this reporting.
