Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (Oracle ILOM) is system management firmware that is preinstalled on an embedded service processor (SP) on Oracle's x86- and SPARC-based servers. Oracle ILOM enables you to actively manage and monitor components in the server in both standby power and full power modes. Using Oracle ILOM, you can remotely manage and monitor the server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse. The Oracle ILOM firmware automatically initializes when standby power is applied to the server.
Oracle ILOM allows you to choose either a command-line interface (CLI) or a browser-based interface.
Note - The chassis also has Oracle ILOM installed on the chassis monitoring module (CMM), which is used to manage chassis functions.
With Oracle ILOM, you can:
Monitor the status of server module sensors and indicators.
Monitor hardware errors and faults and send events using SNMP traps or e-mail alerts when faults occur.
Remotely control the power state of your server module.
Configure the server module BIOS settings.
The SP has a dedicated Ethernet port, and it runs its own Oracle ILOM embedded OS, providing out-of-band management capability. In addition, you can access Oracle ILOM from the server's host OS.
