Alarm Information

Alarm Information

When a fault occurs, the iBMC generates an alarm and log information based on the faulty component. If a universal server manager (USM) is configured, the alarm will be reported to the USM over the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The iBMC also monitors the operating environment and generates an alarm if the environmental conditions exceed the normal range.

Events and Alarms

Based on the impact on the system, alarms can be classified into the following types:

  • Events

    An event is used to inform the user about the occurrence of the event. It has no impact on the system.

  • Alarms

    An alarm indicates a fault that may affect system operating.


This document describes alarms only.

Viewing Alarm Information

You can use any of the following methods to view alarm information:

  • View alarms on the iBMC web user interface (WebUI).

  • Run the ipmcget -d healthevents command on the iBMC command-line interface (CLI).

  • Use network management software.

Alarm Severity

The alarms for servers are classified into the following severity levels:

  • Minor

    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.

  • Major

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

  • Critical

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

The alarms for servers include alarms for all components of servers. The alarm information helps you locate and rectify the fault.
