Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (Oracle ILOM) is system management firmware that is preinstalled on an embedded service processor on Oracle's x86-based servers and SPARC-based servers. Oracle ILOM enables you to actively manage and monitor components in your server. Using Oracle ILOM, you can remotely manage and monitor the server as if you were using a locally attached keyboard, monitor, and mouse, regardless of the state of the host system. The Oracle ILOM firmware automatically initializes when standby power is applied to the server.
Oracle ILOM firmware allows you to choose either a full-featured browser-based web interface or an equivalent command-line interface (CLI).
With Oracle ILOM, you can:
View graphical and text-based consoles for the host.
View Oracle ILOM using a web-based interface or a command-line interface.
Monitor the current status of server sensors and indicators.
Monitor server hardware errors and faults as they occur.
Send events using SNMP traps or email alerts when faults occur.
Remotely control the power state of the server.
Configure the server hardware.
The service processor (SP) has a dedicated Ethernet port. The SP runs its own Oracle ILOM embedded operating system and provides out-of-band management capability. In addition, you can access Oracle ILOM from the server's host operating system (Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, other variants of Linux, or Windows).
You can also configure Oracle ILOM to integrate with other management tools in your data center. You can easily integrate the Oracle ILOM SNMP interface and IPMI management interfaces with other management tools and processes that you might have working already with your servers, such as Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.

In addition, you can integrate Oracle ILOM with several enterprise management, third-party tools, such as CA Unicenter, HP OpenView Operations, BMC Patrol, and IBM Tivoli. For more information about which tools are supported, go to:
