       openipmish - Shell interface to an IPMI system


       openipmish [option]


       The  openipmish  is  a command interpreter that gives the full power of
       the OpenIPMI library to a user-level command language.  It is  designed
       so  it  can easily be driven with a scripting language like TCL, it has
       well-formed output.

       openipmish starts up with no connections or anything  of  that  nature.
       You must enter commands to make connections to domains.


       --dmsg Turn  on message debugging, this will dump all messages to debug
              log output.

              Turn on raw message debugging,  this  will  dump  all  low-level
              messages to debug log output.  This differes from normal message
              debugging in that all protocol messages  are  also  dumped,  not
              just IPMI messages.

       --dmem Turn  on memory debugging, this will cause memory allocation and
              deallocations to be checked.  When the  program  terminates,  it
              will dump all memory that was not properly freed (leaked).

              Turn  on lock debugging, this will check lock operations to make
              sure that locks are help in all the proper places and make  sure
              that locks are properly nested.

       --snmp Enable  the SNMP trap handler.  openipmish must be compiled with
              SNMP code enabled for this option to be available.

       --help Help output


       openipmish   follows   the   standard   command   syntax   defined   in
       ipmi_cmdlang(7).   See that for the details on most commands.  The IPMI
       manual that comes with OpenIPMI will also be quite handy.

       openipmish defines some commands that are not in the  standard  command
       language.  These are:

       read   Read and execute commands from the given file.

       exit   Quit

       redisp_cmd on|off
              Normally,  openipmish  redisplays the command line when an event
              comes in.  This  is  nice  for  interactive  use,  but  bad  for
              scripting.  This lets you turn that function on and off.
