Supported devices

DCImanager supports management of the following types of equipment:

  • switches;
  • power distributors (PDU);
  • IPMI.

DCImanager uses special modules called handlers to manage the equipment. The article contains information about available handlers and their compatibility with specific models of equipment.


Handlers described below may operate incorrectly with particular devices. Full functionality of the handler is guaranteed for devices from the column Tested on devices with the specified version of firmware.
