IPMI stores information into the System Event Log (SEL), Sensor Data Record (SDR) Repository and the Field Replaceable Units (FRUs).The BMC contains a central, non-volatile System Event Log (SEL).IPMB is an I²C based serial bus, which makes connection with various boards inside of one chassis possible.It is used for communication to and between the management controllers (MCs).

IPMI uses a channel model for direct communications between a communication interface and the BMC.

The platform management features are also available when the server has been shutdown (as long as at least one server power supply has power).
