NEC ESMPRO works to centralize the management of NEC Express5800 servers.
This is achieved through two key components - NEC ESMPRO Manager and NEC ESMPRO Agent – which come standard on all NEC Express5800 servers.
NEC ESMPRO Agent works to collect hardware information from the server it resides on while NEC ESMPRO Manager provides administrators the
collected information through a web-based graphic interface for consolidated centralized management.
When combined with NEC’s baseboard management controller EXPRESSSCOPE Engine NEC ESMPRO and its capabilities become remotely accessible
from any management console.
This results in the following operational efficiencies:
If a failure is detect, NEC ESMPRO Agent immediately sends an alert to the NEC ESMPRO Manager on the management console and
helps identify the problem and its location by color-coded icons on the console screen.
To minimize downtime, NEC ESMPRO interacts with EXPRESSSCOPE Engine to enable remote operation so administrators are not necessarily
required to travel to the failed server.
One of the basic features of the NEC ESMPRO and EXPRESSSCOPE Engine Suite is peak power management, or power capping.
This function allows administrators to remotely define the peak power consumption of servers. Actual power draw is displayed as a real-time
graph for intuitive insight on power use and related cost.
NEC ESMPRO and EXPRESSSCOPE Engine together support remote settings of the following power-saving features:
Shift peak power.
Alert when power reaches user-defined threshold levels for warning or abnormality.*
Automatically run a defined action when power continues to exceed the threshold e.g. OS shutdown, collect system event logs, report to administrator.
* Only abnormal value definable with EXPRESSSCOPE Engine 3
Even in systems without an uninterruptable power supply (UPS), NEC ESMPRO when paired with EXPRESSSCOPE Engine can perform scheduled task
to shut down or restart a server.
Greater cost efficiencies can be achieved when used to automatically shut down servers during idle intervals.
The ability to easily cancel or reset scheduled tasks also allows administrators to flexibly respond to changing requirements and
conditions to maximize server performance.
Through its ability to consolidate module updates and update software or firmware across multiple servers, NEC ExpressUpdate Agent software
also simplifies the critical yet arduous task of software version control on servers managed by NEC ESMPRO Manager.
By automatically collecting the latest software versions online and alerting availability through the management console, updates to
multiple and distributed servers can be achieved easily with just a few console screen clicks. This simplified process reduces the need
to manually download modules and applying changes to servers individually.
This also ensuring servers remain updated with the latest modules.
