Management Principles

Management Principles

The system adopts both the iBMC and Hyper Management Module (HMM) for management.

  • The HMM manages fan modules, PSUs, and chassis assets, and supports operations on the command-line interface (CLI).
  • Each server node is configured with an iBMC management module that provides management functions, such as IPMI, KVM, and virtual drives. You can perform operations on the WebUI or CLI.

Figure 2-24 shows the X6800 management and monitoring design.

Figure 2-24 X6800 management and monitoring design

Management principles of the X6800 are as follows:

  • Each server node is managed by its own iBMC and connected to the HMM through the IPMB channel. You can log in to the iBMC CLI and WebUI through the node management network port to monitor and manage server nodes.
  • The HMM uses the fan backplane to monitor and manage fans. The fan backplane provides five independent pulse-width modulation (PWM) control signals for controlling the fan speed and ten TACH signals for detecting the fan speed.

    The HMM uses Huawei speed adjustment algorithms to determine a fan speed based on the temperature of server node temperature-sensitive components and the environment, and sends the fan speed to the fan backplane. The fan backplane also receives fan speed signals from the fan modules to monitor the fan operating status, and reports the status to the HMM for fan health management.

  • PSU monitoring and management: The HMM provides one inter-integrated circuit (I2C) for managing the PSUs and general purpose input/output (GPIO) pins for detecting the PSU installation status and PWROK state.

    The HMM supports queries on PSU output power, PSU installation status, and PSU alarms.

  • The HMM and iBMC converge through the LSW to implement the communication between the iBMC and the HMM. You can access the iBMC of the server node through the front convergence management network port of the mounting ear or the rear covergence management network port of the HMM. You can also access the HMM through the iBMC management network port of the server node.

iBMC Features

The iBMC provides the following features:

  • Keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) and text console redirection
  • Remote virtual media
  • IPMI V2.0
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) V3
  • Common information model (CIM)
  • Web-based logins

Table 2-4 describes the iBMC specifications.

Table 2-4 iBMC specifications



Management interface

Supports integration with any standard management system through the following interfaces:

  • IPMI V2.0
  • CLI
  • SNMP V3
  • Web

Node fault detection

Detects faults and accurately locates faults in hardware.

Node alarm management

Supports alarm management and reports alarms in various ways, such as the SNMP trap, SMTP, and syslog service, to ensure uninterrupted system operation.

Integrated virtual KVM

Provides remote maintenance for troubleshooting. The maximum resolution is 1280 x 1024.

Integrated virtual media

Virtualizes local media devices or images to media devices on a remote server, which simplifies OS installation. The virtual DVD-ROM drive supports a transmission rate of up to 8 MB/s.


Provides a visual WebUI for quick configuration and information queries.

The following web browsers are supported:

  • IE 9.0/10.0/11.0

  • JRE 1.8.0 U45

Fault reproduction

Reproduces faults to facilitate rapid fault diagnosis.

Screenshots and videos

Allows you to view screenshots and videos without login, which facilitates preventive maintenance inspection (PMI).

DNS/directory service

Supports domain management and directory services, which significantly simplifies network and configuration management.

Dual-image backup

Starts from an image backup if the software fails.


Supports IPv6 to ensure sufficient IP addresses.

HMM Features

The Hyper management module (HMM) supports the following specifications and features:

  • IPMI V2.0.
  • CLI-based logins.
  • Out-of-band aggregation management.

Table 2-5 describes the HMM specifications.

Table 2-5 HMM specifications



Management interface

Supports integration with any standard management system through the following interfaces:

  • IPMI V2.0
  • CLI

Fault detection

Detects faults and accurately locates faults in hardware.

Alarm management

Supports alarm management and reports alarms using syslog.

Hot-swap of HMMs

Allows the faulty HMM to be replaced without interrupting system operating and restores the active/standby redundancy mode of the MMs in short time.

Asset management

Provides intelligent asset management to increase efficiency.

Intelligent power management

Uses the power capping technology to increase deployment density and dynamic energy saving technology to lower operating costs.

Out-of-band aggregation management

Integrates the out-of-band management of all server nodes in the chassis, reduces the cabling of the management network, and shortens maintenance time.
