What is IPMI?

The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) specification
defines a set of interfaces for platform management.  It is
implemented by a large number of hardware manufacturers to support
system management on motherboards. The features of IPMI that most
users will be interested in are sensor monitoring (i.e. CPU
temperatures, fan speeds), remote power control, and serial-over-LAN

What is FreeIPMI?

FreeIPMI provides in-band and out-of-band IPMI software based on the
IPMI v1.5/2.0 specification.  FreeIPMI provides tools and libraries
for users to access and read IPMI sensor readings, system event log
(SEL) entries, serial-over-LAN (SOL), remote power control functions,
field replaceable unit (FRU) device information, and more.  More
information about FreeIPMI can be found at the FreeIPMI webpage at:

Release 1.1.2 Changes
o In ipmi-oem, support new Dell C410x OEM extensions
  slot-power-toggle, slot-power-control, get-port-map, set-port-map.
o Fix daemon setup race condition in ipmidetectd and bmc-watchdog that
  can affect systemd.
o In ipmiconsole, support new --serial-keepalive-empty option.
o In bmc-device, support new --rearm-sensor option.
o In ipmi-oem, add additional Dell get-system-info options
  - slot-number
  - system-revision
  - embedded-video-status
  - idrac-info
  - idrac-ipv4-url
  - idrac-gui-webserver-control
  - cmc-ipv4-url,
  - cmc-ipv6-info
  - cmc-ipv6-url
o In ipmi-oem, support Dell 12G mac addresses under get-system-info.   
o In ipmi-sensors, some sensors that reported "Unknown" may now report
  "N/A" due to an interpretation change of several IPMI error codes.
o In ipmi-sensors, workaround sensor reading issue on Sun Blade x6250
  and Sun Blade 6000M2.
o Fix several freeipmi.conf config file parsing bugs.

o In libipmiconsole, fix serial keepalive timeout calculation bug that
  can lead to excessive packets retransmitted.
o In libipmiconsole, support new SERIAL_KEEPALIVE_EMPTY engine flag.
o In libipmiconsole, do not deactivate a SOL payload if it appears the
  SOL payload has been stolen, but we did not receive a SOL deactivating
o In libipmiconsole, fix corner case in which session not closed
  cleanly when DEACTIVATE_ONLY flag specified.
o In libipmiconsole, workaround bug in Dell Poweredge M605, M610, and
  M915 where instance count of SOL is always returned as 0.
o In libfreeipmi, add functions for re-arm sensor events IPMI payload. 
o In libfreeipmi/sensor-read, under some error conditions return error
  of "unavailable" instead of "cannot be obtained" error code.
o In libfreeipmi/sensor-read, add workarounds to handle issues on Sun
  Blade x6250 and Sun Blade 6000M2.

o Various documentation updates.
o Redo formattig of include/freeipmi/templates/ documents.
