  • Patent number: 10437754
    Abstract: A management controller may request units of diagnostic information from a BIOS of the management controller's host computing device. The management controller may trigger an interrupt, in response to which the BIOS, by the execution of a processor of the host, may cause the diagnostic information to be copied to a video memory of the management controller. Upon the completion of the interrupt handler, a graphics controller of the management controller may cause the diagnostic information to be transferred to a non-volatile memory, and transferred out-of-band to a client device.

  • Patent number: 10346239
    Abstract: A system is described wherein power degradation can be used in conjunction with predictive failure analysis in order to accurately determine when a hardware component might fail. In one example, printed circuit boards (PCBs) can unexpectedly malfunction due to a variety of reasons including silicon power variation or air mover speed. Other hardware components can include silicon or an integrated circuit. In order to accurately monitor the hardware component, telemetry is used to automatically receive communications regarding measurements of data associated with the hardware component, such as power-related data or temperature data. The different temperature data can include junction temperature or ambient air temperature to determine an expected power usage. The actual power usage is then compared to the expected power usage to determine whether the hardware component can soon fail.

  • Patent number: 9807013
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions for automatically filtering network broadcast traffic are described. For example, network broadcast traffic can be automatically filtered by turning broadcast filtering on and off (e.g., as a continuous strobe pattern that alternates enabling and disabling of broadcast filtering). For example, a computing device (e.g., via a network interface or management controller of the computing device) can automatically enable network broadcast traffic filtering during a first time period (e.g., a four second time period) and disable network broadcast traffic filtering during a second time period (e.g., a one second time period). A computing device can also automatically enable and disable network broadcast traffic filtering according to an on-off pattern (e.g., based on various criteria, such as network queue size, broadcast traffic volume, etc.).
