OpenHPI is an implementation of the Service Availability Forum's Hardware Platform Interface (HPI) specification. (See As such, OpenHPI facilitates the development of computer manageability applications which are not tied to a single hardware vendor's products. HPI provides an abstracted interface for managing computer hardware, typically for 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. This package is a metapackage which installs all of the OpenHPI components.
