Following is a high-level summary of the Management
Profiles that are referenced in the SMASH Initiative:
CLP Service Profile defines a management access point for human or scripted clients to manage servers in the CLP's Admin Domain.
Base Server Profile defines the minimum information related to a simple stand-alone server. (that is, in a single chassis form factor) The various other Profiles outlined in this section provide added information and management capabilities.
Modular System Profile defines the ability to discover logical and physical information for blade servers and manage their state.
Authentication Profile defines the capability to authenticate an identity
Boot Control Profile defines the capability to control boot configuration on a system. The boot configuration information includes boot sources, boot paths and boot order and includes a general information structure for support of specific boot settings.
Chassis Manager Profile defines the management of a chassis in modular systems. Note that this Profile also provides for redundant chassis management.
CLP Admin Domain Profile defines the ability to identify the collection of server hardware within the management domain of a CLP service.
CPU Profile defines the the capability to represent CPUs or processors in a managed system
Device Tray Profile defines the management of a device tray. A device tray acts as an aggregation point for media devices in a modular system or rack configuration. This Profile enables managing the tray as a whole.
DHCP Client Profile defines the ability to discover the management capabilities and configuration of a server that is acting as a DHCP client.
DNS Client Profile defines the ability to discover the management capabilities and configuration of a server that is acting as a DNS client.
Ethernet Port Profile defines a specialization to the LAN Network Port Profile that provides the ability to discover Ethernet ports and related hardware as well as active Ethernet interfaces in a server. The ethernets in which the ports participate are explicitly NOT addressed.
Fan Profile defines the ability to discover fan information, relationships to physical devices in a server ans related sensors. Note that fan redundancy may also be supported.
Firmware Update Profile defines the management of firmware image updates to the devices in a system. Firmware is loaded using a Universal Resource Identifier (URI). The file type of the firmware image and its format are agnostic, which enables a wide range of programmable devices and persistent memory to be updated.
Firmware Inventory Profile defines the ability to identify the firmware versions installed on a system and the devices to which they apply.
IP Interface Profile defines the ability to discover and manage IPv4 interface and configuration (current and pending) information in a server, and optionally the relationships between the IP interfaces and DHCP and DNS clients. This Profile is specifically not intended to support network gateway or IPv6 management needs.
LAN Network Port Profile defines the ability to discover network port, physical connector and optionally related controller and network interface information on a system.
Pass-thru Module Profile defines the ability to discover and manage the devices that replace physical cables in a server to allow internal network physical ports in a chassis or rack readily accessible from an external network.
Physical Asset Profile defines the ability to discover physical asset inventory information in a server and the physical topology of those assets. This Profile is flexible in that the physical asset information is extensible to the supported Profiles that include physical (that is, rather than logical) device information.
Power Supply Profile defines the ability to discover and manage power supply information in a server. This Profile also provides for redundant power supply management.
Profile Registration Profile defines the ability to discover the registration and versioning of supported Profiles.
Record Log Profile defines the ability to discover and manage the logs and the records within those logs on a server.
Role-Based Authorization Profile defines the capability to authorize based on roles.
Sensor Profile defines the management information related to system sensors and describes the relationship of the sensors to the devices that they monitor.
Server Power State Management Profile defines the behavior of a power management service that enables control of the system power state and hardware reset management.
Shared Device Management Profile defines the management of the shared devices of a modular system.
SMASH Collections Profile - defines the ability to discover and create collections of managed elements. These collections can include the various capabilities, text consoles, logs or settings related to the server.
SSH Service Profile defines the ability to discover and manage the SSH service, related current and default configurations and active sessions on a server.
System Memory Profile defines the memory devices associated with a system.
Telnet Service Profile defines the ability to discover and manage the telnet service, related current and default configurations and active sessions on a server.
Text Console Redirection Profile defines the management of the system text console redirection. Typically the text console would be sent to a local serial port to which a terminal is connected. Redirection of the text console minimizes the number of physical connections or provides remote access to the console text through a network connection.
