The TMS Resource Manager is a cost-effective, out-of-band system appliance that facilitates administration, monitoring of server health and power control. The Resource Manager server attaches to one or more managed systems though an independent, private network and presents a single user interface for easy access to the baseboard management controllers (BMC) of the managed systems, displaying information from these BMCs as a single integrated unit. TMS Resource Manager functions include system health; operating temperature, fan speed, critical voltages, etc. In addition, the Resource Manager provides console access to the individual managed systems via the BMC KVM feature. This interface enables configuration and monitoring of critical in-band functions, including BIOS setup, O/S boot-up as well as execution of O/S run-time commands.
The KVM function also supports the virtual media function, enabling software loading and updates from a single, network-attached client. The RES Manager engine enables in-band reporting from agents that run in the host being managed, reporting CPU utilization, memory capacity, storage and network usage. The Resource Manager is extensible by adding software functional adaptors that can access additional, third party devices, such as switches and other functions not part of the core appliance.

- Single Web Browser Interface– A single user interface to manage up to twenty two devices. This interface eliminates the need for users to learn a different interface for each device in the system. Accessible from any browser, the GUI presents the information collected from each device and a convenient format while providing facilities to control each device. Sensor data such as temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds can be graphed using a time based line chart. This time based display can be used for historical analysis and establish prognostics to indicate wear and tear on system components.
- Out-of-Band Management – to remotely reboot, power-on/off a system while simultaneously monitoring system health. This is accomplished independently of the in-band processor.
- In-Band Console Access– Each of the systems under management includes a keyboard, video, mouse (KVM) feature that enables access to system console resources. The KVM is provided by each motherboard’s service processor through the out-of-band (OOB) management interface allowing the Resource Manager to provide a convenient way to view console messages, access BIOS setup, select boot devices, and other required console activities. In addition, the KVM implements a virtual media device by using facilities of the client system. The user inserts whatever media is required and the client interacts directly with the KVM to load the media contents into the system under management.
- Intelligent Power Control– manages our servers whether they are powered on or if an operating system is installed. The Resource Manager appliance can remotely reboot, power-on or shutdown a system while simultaneously monitoring the fan speed and power voltages of the hardware.
- Remote Media and ISO Images
- Status Monitoring– Consolidates the status information for all our servers on the network and displays it on a web-based console. Monitors and displays server operating parameters including temperatures of key components, power voltages, and fan speed.
- Statistics for Predictive Analysis– Collects data from servers and displays historical charts and trends used to identify, predict, and correct anomalies.
- Automatic Discovery– Simply connect a new server or supported third party hardware’s IPMI port to a port on the management appliance. The appliance discovers the server and includes it on the web-based console. Servers are uniquely identified and can be renamed from the management console.
