Summary

This chapter presents the services providing information about the platform at different levels and granularities. It also presents the way this information is collected and presented to the users. The chapter starts with the details on the discovery of the hardware platform through the HPI, the information it presents to its users, among them to the Platform Management service (PLM). PLM uses the received information to match it with the expected hardware configuration and complements it with the information available on the EEs providing the runtime platform for software entities. PLM exposes the results in the information model available as part of the system information model and also through the PLM track API. The Consistent Level Platform (CLM) forms the cluster among the configured nodes residing on EEs reported by PLM as healthy and ready for service provisioning.
