Displayed Information


Basic Info

Provides brief information about the server, including:

  • Product Name: indicates the server model.
  • Product Serial Number: indicates the server serial number.
  • IP Address: indicates the IP address for logging in to the iBMC.
  • iBMC Firmware Version: indicates the iBMC firmware version.
  • BIOS Firmware Version: indicates the basic input/output system (BIOS) firmware version.
  • GUID: indicates the globally unique identifier (GUID) of the server.
  • Max Web Sessions: indicates the maximum number of users allowed to access the iBMC WebUI at the same time.
  • Online Users: indicates the number of online users.

    For example, 4 (Web: 1; CLI: 2; Redfish: 1) indicates that there are four online users: one that has logged in through the web interface, two through the command line interface, and one through Redfish.

  • Power Status: Green indicates that the server OS is started. Gray indicates that the server OS is shut down.
  • Health Indicator Status: shows the server health status. The indicator status is the same as that on the server.
  • UID Indicator Status: pinpoints the location of the server in a chassis. The indicator status is the same as that on the server.
  • Critical Alarms: indicates the total number of critical alarms.

    A critical alarm may power off the server, and even interrupt system services. You must take corrective action immediately.

  • Major Alarms: indicates the total number of major alarms.

    A major alarm has a major impact on the system. It affects the normal operating of the system or may cause service interruption.

  • Minor Alarms: indicates the total number of minor alarms.

    A minor alarm has a minor impact on the system, but you need to take corrective action as soon as possible to prevent a more severe alarm.

Energy Saving Statistics

Energy Efficiency

Displays energy saving information of the server.

  • Energy Savings: displays the energy saving rate of the server.
  • Power Savings: indicates the power saved by the server.
  • Carbon Footprint Reduction: indicates the carbon emission reduced by the server.
  • The energy saving rate is 5% by default. It is calculated based on the energy saving settings on the BIOS.
  • Power Savings = Actual power consumption x (1/(1 - Energy saving rate) -1)
  • Saving 1 kWh power = Reducing 0.997 kg carbon footprint reduction
