NAME

       ipmidetectd - IPMI node detection monitoring daemon

SYNOPSIS

       ipmidetectd [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  ipmidetectd  daemon regularly sends out IPMI pings to determine if
       nodes have functioning IPMI interfaces or not. It is primarily used  to
       determine those nodes in the cluster that are not functioning properly,
       allowing IPMI commands to be executed  across  the  cluster  faster  by
       skipping those nodes that would automatically timeout.

       The  ipmidetectd  daemon  must  be  configured  using  the  ipmidetectd
       configuration  file.  Until  hosts  to  be   pinged   are   configured,
       ipmidetectd will not function properly.

       See the ipmidetectd.conf(5) manpage for additional information.
