Fang cited two issues as the focus of current OpenBMC development. He noted that more development tools are being ported to the distribution, along with the Chef provisioning system and additional monitoring programs. ARM SoC tree co-maintainer Arnd Bergmann, also in the audience, encouraged Fang and others working on OpenBMC not to wait for some point when everything is “complete,” but to start sending in patches incrementally, even if they will require additional revisions and effort. The system uses the U-Boot bootloader and an embedded Linux distribution created with Yocto. Usually we think this is a net positive but I’m not always so sure, I’ve seen plenty attempts at HA actually cause more outages than they ever prevented, and one of the goals of IPMI is to increase service uptime by allowing you to reboot servers quickly when the OS fails.

Fang then outlined the process of porting OpenBMC to a new board. ARM SoC awt2300 co-maintainer Arnd Bergmann, also in the audience, encouraged Fang and others working on OpenBMC not lunux wait for some point when everything is “complete,” but to start sending in patches incrementally, even if they will require additional revisions and effort. Posted Apr 13, 1: You barely contributed to the discussion.
The BMC is connected to most of the standard buses on the motherboard, so it can monitor temperature and fan sensors, storage devices and expansion cards, and even access the network through its own virtual network interface that includes a separate MAC address. The system uses the U-Boot bootloader and an embedded Linux distribution created with Yocto.
I wonder how hard it asperd be to pull in the openbmc layer?

The first is a common layer meta-openbmc that defines all of the packages used in OpenBMC. You can keep the ‘good engineering’ if it only has anecdotes about response times — i. This behaviour is unwelcome — and your forceful response probably means you’ve suffered in learning this knowledge, so I’m sorry to hear your pain but: Posted Apr 14, 2: Without subscribers, LWN would simply not exist.
Posted Apr 12, At the top comes a machine-specific layer e. From the audience, Grant Likely mentioned that Linaro would like to see patches, to which Fang replied that the OpenBMC team is interested, but that it does not consider most of the code to be in a ready-to-upstream, fully working state.
The session ended with a brief question-and-answer period. We can only go by what you wrote, which seemed to be a presumption that RT was needed for “robust response times”, so the response was both to correct this apparent misconception for you and for everyone else reading ast23000.
Posted Apr 13, On top of that comes a general BMC layer that enables the bootloader, C library, and kernel recipes for a particular SoC vendor at present, meta-aspeed. The resulting distribution is called OpenBMC. Furthermore, as Matthew Garrett outlined quite memorably at linux.
Response times are more a matter of good engineering of the userspace apps. While it is intended as a convenience for those who must manage dozens or hundreds of servers in a remote facility, IPMI has been called out for its potential as a serious hole in server security.
It may only be a start, and only support one BMC vendor, but that itself is still noteworthy progress in comparison to the unappealing security and software-freedom issues that plague so many systems via the Axpeed framework. Posted Apr 26, 8: Then you could run your distribution of preference on your BMC too.

Most server vendors, Fang said at the start of asoeed talk, provide their own BMCs. Now, if we’re going by what I wrote: Please consider signing up for a subscription and helping to keep LWN publishing.
Posted Apr 13, 4: Posted Apr 15, The Yocto build includes three layers. The music fan in me is mildly disappointed, however, that they didn’t call the project “Run-BMC”. What a world where BMC’s aren’t a security threat on nearly every system. But BMCs almost invariably ship with a proprietary IPMI implementation in binary-blob form though, in most cases, that blob is running on Linuxwhich is limited in functionality to what the vendor chooses.
