This package has been replaced by ipmctl located at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jhli/ipmctl/.

IXPDIMM SW is application-level software for configuring and managing Intel DIMMs. It supports functionality to:

Discover Intel DIMMs.

  • View and update the firmware on Intel DIMMs.
  • Provision the platform memory configuration.
  • Create and delete namespaces.
  • Configure data-at-rest security on Intel DIMMs.
  • Monitor Intel DIMM health.
  • Track performance of Intel DIMMs.
  • Debug and troubleshoot Intel DIMMs.

IXPDIMM SW refers to the following interface components:

  • An Application Programming Interface (API) library which provides programmatic access to the IXPDMIM SW functionality.
  • A Common Information Model (CIM) provider library to expose the IXPDIMM SW functionality as standard CIM objects to plug-in to common information model object managers (CIMOMs).
  • A Command Line Interface (CLI) application for configuring and managing Intel DIMMs from the command line.
  • A monitor daemon/system service for monitoring the health and status of Intel DIMMs.
