  • ASR monitors the operating system status and automatically restarts the server if the operating system fails to respond. An alert is then generated if the system has been restarted through ASR.
  • Fan monitoring and control manages fan speed and automatically increases to maintain system cooling if temperature thresholds are exceeded. An alert is generated if a fan:
    • Fails, or failure is predicted (with Remote Supervisor II Adapter card installed)
    • Is installed or removed
  • Power supply monitoring monitors for voltage ranges of supply.
  • Temperature monitoring provides CPU and HDD backplane temperatures. An alert is generated if (preset) temperature warning thresholds are exceeded or restored, and if critical temperature thresholds are exceeded. Soft and hard system shutdowns are automatically initiated if critical temperature thresholds are exceeded.
  • Voltage monitoring provides CPU and power subsystem voltage thresholds. An alert is generated if abnormal voltages are detected.
  • Power on/off and reset sequencing are supported through system monitoring.
  • Text console redirect features keyboard and mouse control.
  • LED controls (light path support) provide onboard diagnostics with an LED map, which is illuminated in case of key component errors or failures to enable quick local diagnostics and servicing.
