Intelligent Platform Management Interface

Supported Technology

Monitoring today’s datacenters requires a rich understanding of their infrastructure. This includes network, compute, storage and environmental resources, plus detailed knowledge of per CPU power, temperature, voltage and current utilization. SevOne® xStats Adapter for use with Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) helps achieve this goal by supporting more than 200 computer systems vendors. It provides consistent access to environmental metrics for vendors including Cisco, Dell, HP and NEC, among others.

SevOne xStats can be leveraged anywhere third-party, time-stamped metrics can be brought into the SevOne platform and correlated with other metric, flow and log data. It integrates via the open interfaces of IPMI v1.5 and v2.0 to enable you to create SevOne dashboards with critical environmental and operational metrics from across the entire compute infrastructure.
