Plugin status

This plugin is no longer being actively maintained by intel. Work has instead shifted to the intel-dcm-platform plugin.

snap collector plugin - Intel Node Manager

Plugin to collect data from Intel's Node Manager. Which is presenting low level metrics like power consumption, cpu temperature, etc. Currently it is using Ipmitool to collect data from NM.

Getting Started

Plugin collects specified metrics in-band on OS level

System Requirements

  • Plugin needs to be run on server platform which supports Intel Node Manager.
  • Currently it works only on Linux Servers
  • Ipmitool needs to be installed on platform


Download Intel Node Manager plugin binary:

You can get the pre-built binaries for your OS and architecture at plugin's Github Releases page.

To build the plugin binary:


Clone repo into $GOPATH/src/github/intelsdi-x/:

$ git clone<yourGithubID>/snap-plugin-collector-node-manager

Build the plugin by running make in repo:

$ make

This builds the plugin in ./build/

Configuration and Usage

On OS level user needs to load modules:

  • ipmi_msghandler
  • ipmi_devintf
  • ipmi_si

Those modules provides specific IPMI device which can collect data from NM

There are currently 6 configuration options:

  • mode - defines mode of plugin work, possible values: legacy_inband, legacy_inband_openipmi, oob
  • channel - defines communication channel address (default: "0x00")
  • slave - defines target address (default: "0x00")
  • user - for OOB mode only, user for authentication to remote host
  • password - for OOB mode only, password for authentication to remote host
  • host - for OOB mode only, IP of host which will be monitored OOB

Sample configuration of node manager plugin:

    "control": {
        "plugins": {
            "collector": {
                "node-manager": {
                    "all": {
                        "mode": "legacy_inband",
                        "channel": "6",
                        "slave": "0x2c"
