Software/code relevant to the DTC:


As the name says: a tool used to send commands with IPMI. Page includes usage with the DTC and how to build off of its code.

DTC library (dtcreg.o):

A library with read/write functions constructed from ipmitool libraries specifically for use with the DTC.


A command-line tool for reading/writing register values on the DTC.


A copy of ipmitool modified to include the dtcreg library and dtctool may be found at:

To Do

  • Implement logging using log4cplus (see DCC or other code for examples)
  • Throw exceptions on errors
  • Enhance Init() method to check registers 1, 7, 0xc etc for sensible values. Also capture versions and serial numbers in member variables for later checking.
  • DTCRegister – add boolean "verify" which causes readback and check of value, exception on mis-match
  • Implement cgicc for HTML output of "expert view"
  • Make a simple HTML view of DTC registers in a table with their names and brief description
  • Implement a "keepalive" function in dtctool to make sure that the connection never times out
  • Re-write dtctool with the DTC class (contingent on importing ipmitool into the xDAQ source tree)
