NAME

       ipmi - Shell interface to an IPMI system



SYNOPSIS

       ipmish [option]



DESCRIPTION

       The  ipmish  is  a command interpreter that gives the full power of the
       OpenIPMI library to a user-level command language.  It is  designed  so
       it  can  easily  be  driven  with a scripting language like TCL, it has
       well-formed output.

       ipmish starts up with no connections or anything of that  nature.   You
       must enter commands to make connections to domains.



OPTIONS

       --dmsg Turn  on message debugging, this will dump all messages to debug
              log output.

       --drawmsg
              Turn on raw message debugging, this will dump all low-level mes-
              sages  to  debug  log output.  This differes from normal message
              debugging in that all protocol messages  are  also  dumped,  not
              just IPMI messages.

       --dmem Turn  on memory debugging, this will cause memory allocation and
              deallocations to be checked.  When the  program  terminates,  it
              will dump all memory that was not properly freed (leaked).

       --dlock
              Turn  on lock debugging, this will check lock operations to make
              sure that locks are help in all the proper places and make  sure
              that locks are properly nested.

       --snmp Enable the SNMP trap handler.  ipmish must be compiled with SNMP
              code enabled for this option to be available.

       --help Help output



COMMANDS

       ipmish follows the standard command syntax defined in  ipmi_cmdlang(7).
       See  that for the details on most commands.  The IPMI manual that comes
       with OpenIPMI will also be quite handy.

       ipmish defines two commands that are not in the standard  command  lan-
       guage.  These are:


       read   Read and execute commands from the given file.


       exit   Quit


       redisp_cmd on|off
              Normally, ipmish redisplays the command line when an event comes
              in.  This is nice for interactive use, but  bad  for  scripting.
              This lets you turn that function on and off.  ipmish
