DMTF DASH Manageability Tools for IT Administration

DASH (Desktop and mobile Architecture for System Hardware) is a client management standard released by the DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force). DASH is a web services based standard for secure out-of-band and remote management of desktops and mobile systems. Client systems that support out-of-band management help IT administrators perform tasks independent of the power state of the machine or the state of the operating system. Examples of out-of-band management tasks include: 1) Securely starting up a system remotely, even if it is currently powered off; 2) Viewing asset inventory information for a system that is powered off;  3) Retrieving health information about system components even if the OS is unavailable.

Tools for IT Administrators

AMD has a set of applications for client manageability, namely: AMD Management Console (AMC); DASH CLI; and AMD Management Plugin for SCCM (AMPS)
