Hello athkar,


Specifically for Intel servers there is a fee-based tool called Intel Server Management Software: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/server-management/intel-server-management.html It gather information from BMC and make it possible to manage multiple servers at the same time.


An alternate tool available for most OEMs is the IPMI tool: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/sb/g37830002_serverman...


Let me know it this helps a bit

Hello athkar,


Thank you for joining the community


Since you are mentioning the BMC I can assume you have a server. Could you please tell us what server board model do you have? This is with the purpose to provide you with the most accurate answer possible


About a way to track ME usage in a server through BMC really not remembering but I will research if such thing is possible either using BMC or UEFI shell


I will look forward for your updates

Hello athkar,


This is the BMC user guide for Intel servers. I am not sure if the BMC functionality in Fujitsu servers is similar. I could suggest you to contact Fujitsu and ask them this same question

Hi Jose, 

Thank you for sharing the user guide. But it shows the option to get utilization information through BMC Web console. Can you please let me know of how to get utilization statistics(CPU, I/O, Disk) programmatically for intel servers via the BMC? Like how does the BMC get this utilisation statistics from Intel ME( through some API or any other method)? I'd definitely follow up with Fujitsu for the same  

Thanks and Regards,
