OpenHPI is an open source project that provides an implementation of the [http://saforum.org SA Forum] (SAF) Hardware Platform Interface (HPI).
HPI is an abstracted interface for managing computer hardware, typically chassis and rack based servers. HPI includes resource modeling; access to and control over sensor, control, watchdog, and inventory data associated with resources; abstracted System Event Log interfaces; hardware events and alerts; and a managed hotswap interface.
OpenHPI's architecture contains a modular mechanism intended to make adding new hardware support easier. Several plugins exist in the OpenHPI source tree giving access to various types of hardware. This includes, but is not limited to, IPMI based servers, Blade Center, and machines which export data via sysfs.
The OpenHPI project is always looking for more participants. If you are interested in using or taking a part in the evolution of OpenHPI, then [http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/openhpi-devel join our mailing list] and [mailto:email@example.com drop us a line].
