Intel AMT Features > Event Manager > Detailed Description

Detailed Description

The Event Manager feature is responsible for dealing with internal alerts that occur in both the host platform and the Intel AMT device, regardless of the power state.


When a remote application loses network connectivity with an Intel AMT device, any events occurring during this time will also be lost unless they are set to be logged locally. This will be true even if the event is persistent. It is recommended that all significant events be configured to be logged. It is also recommended that when the remote application receives a “link up” Platform Event Trap (PET) or WS-Event, it should read the log to identify any events that may have occurred while the link was down.

The following table describes the main components of the Event Manager feature.




Something that happens in an Intel AMT system, such as a critical temperature problem or a system boot failure.


Information about an event. Alerts enable system administrators to become aware of dynamic situations evolving in systems as they occur.

Event Filters

User defined filters that determine what kind of events Intel AMT will catch and how the alert information is made available.


An entity capable of measuring or reporting the characteristics of some physical property. For example, the temperature or voltage characteristics of a Computer System.

Event Filter Subscribers

Remote computers defined to receive alerts from the Event Manager interface.
