The following table describes the types of events that are received by the Intel AMT. The events are in ASF format (See DMTF document DSP0136).




Sensors Events

Temperature Problems

(Sensor Type = 1)

Generic critical temperature problem

Generic temperature warning

Over-Temperature problem

Over-Temperature warning

Under-Temperature problem

Under-Temperature warning

Voltage Problems

(Sensor Type = 2)

Generic critical voltage problem

Over-Voltage problem

Under-Voltage problem

Fan Problems

(Sensor Type = 3)

Generic critical fan failure

Generic predictive fan failure

Fan speed problem (speed too low to meet chassis cooling spec’s)

Fan speed warning (fan speed below expected speed. cooling still adequate)

Case Intrusion

(Sensor Type = 4)

Physical security [chassis intrusion] )

System Firmware Errors Events

No system memory; memory missing
