introduction to iBMC

The iBMC is a Huawei proprietary intelligent management system that remotely manages servers.

The iBMC complies with Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) standards and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). It provides various functions, including keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) redirection, text console redirection, remote virtual media, and reliable hardware monitoring and management.

The iBMC provides the following features:

Multiple management interfaces for system integration

The iBMC provides IPMI, command-line interface (CLI), Data Center Manageability Interface (DCMI), Redfish interfaces, Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS), and SNMP.

Compliance with IPMI 1.5 and IPMI 2.0

iBMC provides standard IPMI interfaces, which allow integration with any standard management system.

Fault detection and alarm management

The iBMC implements fault detection and alarm management, ensuring stable, uninterrupted 24/7 system operation.

Virtual KVM and virtual media

The iBMC provides virtual KVM and virtual media, facilitating remote maintenance.

Web-based user interface (WebUI)

The iBMC provides a web-based UI for setting and querying device information.

System breakdown screenshots and video playback

The iBMC allows screenshots and videos to be created when the system breaks down. The screenshots and videos help identify the cause of the system breakdown.

Screen snapshots and videos

The iBMC offers screen snapshots and videos, which simplify routine preventive maintenance, recording, and auditing.

Support for DNS and LDAP

The iBMC supports domain name system (DNS) and Lightweight Directory Application Protocol (LDAP) to implement domain management and directory service.

Active/standby backup

The iBMC works in active/standby mode to ensure system reliability. If the active iBMC is faulty, the standby iBMC takes over services immediately.

Intelligent power management

The iBMC uses power capping to improve server density and uses dynamic power saving to reduce operational expenditure (OPEX).

LCD-based component monitoring

The LCD obtains component information from the iBMC. Users can use the LCD to monitor component status, view alarms, and set iBMC network parameters.
