Use Cases

KVM is useful when the host processor is or will be active and a remote IT operator wants to control the client platform. For example,

   The platform displays a blue screen and the IT operator wants to see it.

   The operating system is unresponsive or is in repair mode, so other remote display applications that run using the operating system are not available.

   The platform is “asleep” (S3 state) and the IT operator wishes to wake up the platform and work with it.

   The platform needs to be booted, and requires a combination of BIOS (text) and operating system (graphics) interaction. The IT operator can observe the full flow when rebooting.
