GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM)

GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM) is GIGABYTE’s proprietary multiple server remote management software platform, available as a free download. GSM is compatible with either IPMI or Redfish (RESTful API) connection interfaces, and comprises the following sub-programs:

  • GSM Server - a software program with an easy to use browser-based GUI to enable global remote monitoring and management of multiple GIGABYTE servers via each server node’s BMC.
  • GSM CLI - a command-line interface program to enable global remote monitoring and management of multiple GIGABYTE servers via each server node’s BMC.
  • GSM Agent* - a software program installed locally on each GIGABYTE server node that retrieves additional node information (CPU/Mem/HDD/PCI/…) from the OS and passes it to the BMC. This information can then be utilized by GSM Server or GSM CLI.
  • GSM Mobile - a remote server management mobile APP, available for both Android and iOS.
  • GSM Plugin - a plugin that allows the user to manage and monitor GIGABYTE server nodes within VMware’s vCenter.

* GSM Agent is currently compatible with Avocent MergePoint IPMI 2.0 BMC firmware, but not yet compatible with Megarac SP-X BMC firmware.





Intuitive & Informative User Interface

Starting from the GSM Server dashboard, the user can clearly understand the status of each node in the IT environment, including:

  • Node connection status (system is online/offline)
  • Node hardware sensor status (to detect hardware anomalies). Sensors measure voltage, fan speed and temperature
  • Node usage rate status (allowing you to timely allocate more resources when they are needed), including:
    • Power consumption
    • Disk/RAID usage information
    • Memory usage rate
    • CPU usage rate
    • Network card / PCI information

The user can also perform various management functions, including:

  • Node remote access
    • Power on / off / reset
    • Launch iKVM
    • Reboot BMC / BMC Account Configuration
  • Network Configuration
    • IPv4/IPv6 setting
  • Alert Management
    • SNMP trap setting
    • Platform events filters
    • Forwarding alerts by email
  • BMC / BIOS / CPLD Update
  • Power Consumption Limit Setting
  • Group Management
    • Create groups of nodes for BMC / BIOS update or manage power consumption settings


GSM Mobile for iOS and Android

A GSM Mobile app is available for download for both iOS and Android mobile phones for remote server management on the go.


Management through VMware vCenter

A GSM Plugin is available for VMware’s vCenter, allowing the user to perform remote monitoring and management of server nodes without having to switch to a separate software platform.


GIGABYTE Management Console (AMI MegaRAC SP-X)

The server utilizes a AMI MegaRAC SP-X platform for BMC server management, with a feature rich and easy to use browser-based graphical user interface. Notable features include:

  • RESTful API support (including the latest DMTF standards of Redfish) allows the administrator to integrate with 3rd party applications for server management
  • HTML5-based iKVM remote management client included as a standard feature, no additional add-on license required to purchase
  • Detailed FRU information from SMBIOS
  • Pre-event automatic video recording feature from 10 to 30 seconds
  • SAS/RAID controller monitoring feature
