Overview of ILOM Software

Oracle's Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) provides advanced service processor hardware and software that you can use to manage and monitor your Oracle servers. ILOM's dedicated hardware and software is preinstalled on a variety of Sun server platforms, including x64-based Sun Fire servers, Sun Blade modular chassis systems, Sun Blade server modules, as well as on SPARC-based servers. ILOM is a vital management tool in the data center and can be used to integrate with other data center management tools already installed on your systems.

Oracle is currently transitioning many systems to support ILOM so that customers will have a single, consistent, and standards-based service processor (SP) across Sun's product lines. For customers, this means you have:

ILOM enables you to actively manage and monitor the server independently of the operating system state, providing you with a reliable Lights Out Management (LOM) system. With ILOM, you can proactively:

The ILOM service processor (SP) runs its own embedded operating system and has a dedicated Ethernet port, which together provide out-of-band management capability. In addition, you can access ILOM from the server's host operating system. Using ILOM, you can remotely manage your server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse.

ILOM automatically initializes as soon as power is applied to your server. It provides a full-featured, browser-based web interface and has an equivalent command-line interface (CLI). There is also an industry-standard SNMP interface and IPMI interface.
