Basic Information

Displays basic 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 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 of the server.
  • Maximum Number of Web Sessions: indicates the maximum number of users who are allowed to log in to the iBMC web user interface (WebUI) simultaneously.
  • Number of Online Users: indicates the number of online users.

    For example, 2 (Web: 2, CLI: 0) indicates that two users have logged in to the iBMC WebUI and no user has logged in to the iBMC command-line interface (CLI).

  • Power State: The green icon indicates that the server OS is powered on, and the gray icon indicates that the server OS is powered off.
  • Health Light State: The value is the same as the status of the health indicator on the server. Users can view the health light information on this page.
  • UID Indicator State: The value is the same as the status of the unit identification (UID) indicator on the server. Users can view the UID light information on this page.
  • Critical Alarms: indicates the total number of critical alarms. (Critical alarms are generated for the faults that may power off the server and even interrupt services. You need to take measures immediately to rectify the faults.)
  • Major Alarms: indicates the total number of major alarms. (Major alarms are generated for the faults that may affect normal system operating or interrupt services.)
  • Minor Alarms: indicates the total number of minor alarms. (Minor alarms are generated for the faults that do not have major impacts on the system; however, you need to take measures immediately before the faults get worse.)

2

Virtual Buttons

Provides common virtual buttons.

  • Power Button: includes Power On, Normal Power Off, and Forced Power Off.
  • UID: includes On, Off, and Blink (the maximum blinking duration is 255 seconds).

3

Common Operation Shortcuts

Provides common operation shortcuts. You can click a shortcut to quickly go to the required page. The shortcuts include the following:

  • User Settings: goes to the Local User and LDAP Group areas on the User Settings page.
  • NetWork Settings: goes to the NetWork Settings page.
  • Power Control: goes to the Power Control page.
  • Upgrade: goes to the Firmware Upgrade page.
  • One-Click Info Collection: downloads collected hardware information. For details about collected information, see One-Click Information Collection.
  • Restore Factory Settings: goes to the Restore Factory Settings dialog box. Click OK or Cancel in the dialog box.

    If you restore factory settings, all user configurations are restored, the following items are only part of them:

    • Serial port interconnection status
    • Power capping settings
    • LDAP and SSL certificates deletion
    • User names, passwords, validity periods, group settings, and account locking information

Energy Saving Statistics

Displays energy saving information of the server.

  • Energy saving rate: displays the energy saving rate of the server compared with a similar device from a competitor.
  • Save Power: indicates the power saved by the server.
  • Reduces carbon emission: indicates the carbon emission reduced by the server.
NOTE:
  • Energy saving statistics are calculated as follows:
    • The energy saving rate is a comprehensive indicator (5% by default).
    • Reduced power consumption = Actual power consumption x (1/(1 - Energy saving rate) -1)
    • Saving 1 kWh power = Reducing 0.997 kg Carbon Dioxide emission
  • To re-collect statistics about energy saving, choose Power > Power and click Reset Statistics.
  • The energy saving rate is calculated based on the enablement statuses of energy saving menus. Each menu provides an energy saving rate and has its own weight.
