A Tour Of The Server ILOM Web GUI

Oracle exadata is a combination of servers and storage cell. Each of this has ILOM interface which is used for hardware management and maintenance activity.

What is ILOM?

An ILOM is a service processor (SP) that is embedded into all Oracle Sun Server–based products.Oracle ILOM’s dedicated hardware and software is pre-installed on a variety of Oracle Sun server platforms.

What it Does?

The aim of an ILOM is to provide support for a server in a manner such that access to the data center is not required for day-to-day support functions.

An ILOM also provides access to a variety of diagnostic features and has integration with Oracle’s Automatic Service Request (ASR) to provide call-home functionality to report hardware failures to Oracle for fast support.

The Oracle ILOM service processors provide a wide array of features, and its functional aspects improve with every release of the ILOM.

The Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) runs its own embedded operating system and has a dedicated Ethernet port, which together provide out-of-band management capability

  • Environmental reporting
  • View the graphical and non-graphical consoles for the host
  • Gather the hardware diagnostics
  • Monitoring host states remotely
