We are pleased to introduce the latest version of Sonalake’s open source Verax IPMI Library (2.0.0).
Verax IPMI is an asynchronous, highly scalable Java library implementing IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) protocol 2.0 over UDP in accordance with the v2.0, revision 1.0 standard. The IPMI interface has been adopted as an SNMP alternative for hardware management by many vendors.
The most significant changes include support for Serial Over LAN (SOL). SOL is a mechanism that enables the input and output of the serial ports of managed systems to be redirected over IP.
IPMI Library now contains samples of usage of the new SOL API. They show how to create SOL sessions (or reuse existing one), send data to a managed system's serial console, receive data from it as well as invoke some serial port specific operations like assert/deassert CTS etc.
