Oracle ILOM firmware – This firmware is located on the service processor and provides a comprehensive service portal using a command-line interface (CLI) and browser user interface (BUI) for lights-out management capabilities (such as remote power-on, power-off, etc.), monitoring the health of the environmental subsystem (such as power, fans, temperature, cover interlock, etc.), and provides fault management and automated diagnosis capabilities during server initialization (such as QuickPath Interconnect code and Memory Reference code) and server runtime.
Pc-Check – Accessed through Oracle ILOM, the DOS-based Pc-Check utility tests all motherboard components (processor, memory, and I/O), ports, and slots. If enabled through Oracle ILOM, this utility will run each time the system powers on. For information about Pc-Check, refer to the Oracle X86 Servers Diagnostics Guide for Servers With Oracle ILOM 3.1.
SNMP– Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Traps are generated by the SNMP agents that are installed on the SNMP devices being managed by Oracle ILOM. Oracle ILOM receives the SNMP Traps and converts them into SNMP event messages that appear in the event log. For information about SNMP event messages that appear in the event log, refer to the Administration, Identifying SNMP Trap Messages.
Oracle Solaris OS Only
Oracle Solaris OS Predictive Self-Healing (PSH) – The PSH technology provides automated diagnosis capabilities of error events encountered with the processor, memory subsystem, and Integrated I/O subsystem during runtime. The ability of PSH to off-line faulty processors and retire memory pages during runtime enhances system availability and prevents future interruptions. The Oracle Solaris OS PSH technology in conjunction with ILOM and BIOS provide extensive fault management architecture for placing processors offline and disabling DIMMs.
Log files and console messages – These items provide the standard Oracle Solaris OS log files and investigative commands that can be accessed and displayed on the device of your choice.
The LEDs, Oracle ILOM, Oracle Solaris OS PSH, and many of the log files and console messages are integrated. For example, a fault detected by the Oracle Solaris software will display a detected fault, log it, pass information to Oracle ILOM where it will be logged, and, depending on the fault, will cause one one or more LEDs to light.
