NAME

       openhpi - an implementation of the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface

DESCRIPTION

       OpenHPI is an implementation of the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface, which provides
       a standard C library interface to manage, monitor, and control hardware (both local and
       remote).

       OpenHPI 2.x implements the HPI B.01.01 specification.

       The OpenHPI client library (libopenhpi) provides all the connection functionality needed
       by the client application to connect to the OpenHPI daemon running on the local or remote
       server.

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES

       Some of OpenHPI's functioning can be changed by setting environment variables.  This
       documents all client environmental settings.

       OPENHPI_DAEMON_HOST=URL
         URL for the host running the daemon. This can be "localhost" (default) if the daemon is
         running on the local host or an ip address.

       OPENHPI_DAEMON_PORT=PORT_NUMBER
         The port number the host is listening on for clent connections.  Default port is 4743.

HARDWARE SUPPORT

       OpenHPI provides a number of plugins that talk to different hardware types.  The following
       is a list of tested plugins in OpenHPI 2.x.

       ipmi
           An IPMI plugin that can talk locally (via smi interface and OpenIPMI device driver) or
           remotely (via IPMI over LAN).  It supports IPMI 1.5 for standard rackmount servers,
           and some of IPMI 2.0 for support of ATCA chassis.

           IPMI plugin depends on libOpenIPMI version 1.4.x.

       ipmidirect
           An IPMI plugin designed specifically for ATCA chassis.  It implements IPMI commands
           directly in the plugin.

       snmp_bc
           An SNMP based plugin that can communicate with IBM BladeCenter, as well as IBM xSeries
           servers with RSA 1 adapters.

           SNMP_BC plugin depends on net-snmp > 5.0.7.
