8.6. USING SENSORS IN OPENIPMI

119

DISCRETE STATE

Monitors the value of a state. Valid values are: 00h - state deasserted 01h - state asserted

DISCRETE PREDICTIVE FAILURE

This is used to know if an entity is about to fail, but is still operations. Valid values are:

00h - predictive failure deasserted 01h - predictive failure asserted

DISCRETE LIMIT EXCEEDED

This is used to tell if a limit has been exceeded. Valid values are: 00h - limit not exceeded 01h - limit exceeded

DISCRETE SEVERITY

This is used to know if an entity is in trouble or other state information. Valid values are: 00h - transition to ok 01h - transition to non-critical from ok. 02h - transition to critical from less critical. 03h - transition to non-recoverable from less critical. 04h - transition to non-critical from more critical. 05h - transition to critical from non-recoverable. 06h - transition to non-recoverable.1 07h - monitor 08h - informational The actual meaning of these is not defined by the spec. This is a presence sensor to know when an entity is present or not. Note that OpenIPMI uses this for entity presence if it is available. Valid values are: 00h - entity not present 01h - entity present

DISCRETE DEVICE PRESENCE

DISCRETE DEVICE ENABLE

This tells if a device is enabled. Valid values are: 00h - device disabled 01h - device enabled

DISCRETE PERFORMANCE MET

This is used to tell if system performance is meeting expectations. Valid values are:

00h - performance met 01h - performance not met

1This state seems rather silly and is probably not used.
