fake-ipmistack is a simple and naive implementation of IPMI stack/BMC according to Intel's IPMI specification for functional testing.
Its main purpose is to test IPMItool. However, it can be used for testing of other IPMI CLI tools and applications.
mkdir build cd build cmake ../ && make VERBOSE=1 # if compiled successfully ./src/fake-ipmistack [INFO] server is awaiting new connection
Fake-ipmistack is now listening for requests via UNIX socket,

In case you'd like to use fake-ipmistack outside of IPMItool, you're probably wondering about its interface. It's using UNIX socket to communicate with client as it was the simplest and the quickest way to do it. Feel free to check-out IPMItool's dummy interface to get the idea how to implement fake-ipmistack compatible interface in your project.
Structures used to shift data back and forth are in
dummy_rqrepresents client's request
dummy_rsrepresents reponse sent back to client
