The Overview page provides basic information about the server, virtual buttons, and common operation shortcuts.
Table 1 Description of the Overview page
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.
Provides virtual buttons that are commonly used.
- Power On: Power on the server.
- Power Off: Power off the server.
- Forced Power Off: Forcibly power off the server.
- Steady On: Activate the UID indicator to pinpoint the location of the server in a chassis.

Energy Saving Statistics
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
