The Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA) standard features advanced hardware management mechanisms defined in the Intelligent Platform Management Interface specification (IPMI). They provide advanced control and supervision means integrated into hardware of an ATCA-based system. Additionally, remote management capabilities, together with multiple redundancies, increase the reliability of the entire system. Proper performance of the IPMI implementation is required for an ATCA-based platform to sustain its functionality. As the level of complexity the of ATCA standard implementation is significant, the process of preparation of a platform built upon this standard is also complicated. At the same time a diligent removal of any possible system defects is essential for enabling the platform to deliver the reliability declared. This creates a need for additional utilities for performing diagnostic tasks, which provide support for development of both hardware and software for an ATCA-based system.
