DCImanager Administrator



You can set up notifications to platform administrators about the status of equipment. Notifications will be displayed in the DCImanager interface and can be duplicated to the emails of administrators.

Work logic

The following types of notifications can be set up in DCImanager:

ObjectNotification type
Serversone or several errors have been found during diagnostics

IPMI sensors

voltage out of range

temperature out of range

fan speed out of range

In the notification settings, you set the period of time after which the parameter out of the range is considered critical. The maximum and minimum allowable parameter values are set in the server IPMI.

DCImanager periodically polls IPMI every five minutes. If the parameter value is out of range, the platform will poll IPMI again after the time interval specified in the notification settings. If the parameter value does not return to acceptable values, DCImanager will create a notification. No repeat notifications about this event will be created in the platform.

If the parameter value was out of range for a given time and then returned to normal, DCImanager will create a notification about it.

For example, the platform administrator has configured a setting for the "Temperature out of range for 2 minutes" notification. DCImanager polled the IPMI at 12:00 and found the temperature to be higher than normal. In this case, the platform will poll the IPMI at 12:02 and, if the temperature remains outside the range, an appropriate notification will be created. DCImanager will continue to poll the IPMI every five minutes and, if the temperature drops to an acceptable value, it will create a "Temperature back to normal" notification.
