The Open Source Lab at Oregon State University strives to advance the adoption of open source software across the globe through education, outreach and development. By offering world-class hosting services to some of the world’s largest open source projects, developing new open source tools, and giving students real-world experience under the guidance of experienced mentors, the lab supports the future of the open source community.


  • OSUOSL Data Center Tools project OSUOSL hosts variety of systems in it’s data center which include a wide array of vendors . Each of these machines utilize some type of out-of-band technology such as iLO or iDrac which allows direct access to the machine power and other features. Unfortunately each OOB tool is different between the command line access and the console access. OSUOSL have begun work on an IPMI management tool, and would like to integrate SNMP functionality with this to create a unified OOB management tool.
