Part I Inspur Ruijie Server Management Software
Part I Inspur Ruijie Server Management Software
Chapter I Introduction
1.1 Framework of Software System
The management software provides a relatively flexible management framework.
Users can select different management frameworks according to the complexity of the
management network. If the network to be managed is comparatively simple, which is
confined to a LAN or a LAN managed through an external network, then a simple network management framework (Web Server + NM) may be selected. If the network to be
managed is a relatively complex one, such as the management of multi-networks, then a
complex network management framework (Web Server +SM+NM) may be selected.
Structure of Management Software
The whole management software consists of three parts, Web Server, Sub Management (SM), and Node Managed (NM), as is shown in Figure 1-1.
Web Server: It provides Web management sites. The administrator can visit
these web server sites through IE browser, log in the Ruijie Server management system
to manage and control the nodes. Web server, realized through JSP/Java+Tomcat, can
be deployed in Windows system and Linux system. Web server can manage each NM
node directly, as well as through SM.
SM (Sub management): A sub management node, installed between Web Server
and NM, works as a transfer station for Web Server and NM, when the system is complex.
NM (Node Managed): A managed node, operating on a managed server, monitors the management and gives alarm when abnormal management occurs.
Figure 1-1
1
Part I Inspur Ruijie Server Management Software
The overall structure of the management software is shown in Figure 1-1. Web
server can be located in Beijing Headquarter, and SM may well be installed in Shandong
Branch and Jiangsu Branch. SM is responsible for managing the NM of each branch,
thus making it possible for the administrator to visit the web server of Beijing Headquarter through a browser, then the administrator can manage all the NMs. The web servers
may be directly installed on the serve nodes of each branch by skipping the SMs, then
the administrator shall manage all the NMs by visiting web servers of different branches.
Simple Network Management Structure
The whole management software is made up of two parts, Web Server and NM.
As Figure 1-2 indicates, it can be applied to LAN. To manage servers of different network segments, the management software can install the web server into the gateway
server, who manages different network segments.
Figure 1-2
Complex Network Management Structure
This whole management software consists of three parts, Web Server, SM, and
NM, as is shown in Figure 1-3.

3.4.9 Dynamic Power Node Manager (DPNM)
Note: This part mainly focuses on how to use DNMP. If there is an "M" on the
nameplate or the configuration label of a server, this suggests that the server has DPNM
function. If not, please skip this part.
1. Brief Introduction of DPNM
DPNM is a technology to optimize the system by realizing the variation of power
consumption with the dynamic control of the usage of the system resources. DPNM
records the variations of the actual usage in a defined period to develop control policies
for system power consumption. The policies keep the system power consumption
consistent with the usage, reducing unnecessary consumptions.
DPNM is an OOB power management engine built in the Intel chipset. It
49
Part I Inspur Ruijie Server Management Software
cooperates with the BIOS power manager and OS power manager, in order to adjust
the platform power consumption dynamically to the optimal performance-power
consumption ratio.
DPNM is developed on the basis of PMBUS power. When a system adopts
PMBus, the system controls the system power consumption through PMBus. The
management engine (ME) is the core of DPNM. PMBus power can be connected with
ME hardware through the bus, and send the data on real-time power consumption,
health status, temperature, and fans rotation speed of the power to ME through PMBus.
BMC can be connected with ME hardware through the management bus, to transform
the power consumption policy provided by the management software into standard
IPMI protocol data and to send the data into ME. DPNM, part of the OOB management
functions, requires communications between BMC management chips and PMBus
power, and actions on key date and policies of the power taken by ME. Therefore, it is
pivotal that the management software is complete and simple.
With the support of the related hardware configuration, dynamic power
management can be realized through Inspur Ruijie management software.

3.4.11 How to get and maintain history data of power consumption
We provide our users with the interface of the database, which can be used to
search the database at any time, to help examine and maintain the history data. The
program applies the database Mysql. The user name is root, and the password is
111111. The power information is saved in the table t_power in the database dpnm. To
reduce the load of the database, when the number of the record is greater than 5million,
Ruijie management software will export the first 200 thousand pieces of information in
t_power into a PowerDB.txt (which will be saved in \LCSMS\WebServer\tomcat under
the installation directory of the management software) and the database will not save
the information. When the number of the record reaches 5 million again, the system
will re-export files with the same path name and cover the previous information.
3.4.12 SOL Console
SOL console necessitates the support of IPMI 2.0. Please confirm that your
machine supports IPMI 2.0 first. It also needs to activate the function of Remote Access
in BIOS.
To realize the remote access in text mode, SOL offers the function of serial port
redirection in text mode.
