This project aim to offer a standardized way to get informations about hardware, for example RAID controllers, ethernet controllers and so on. Instead of using a particular tool for a particular hardware, there will be a standardized API to get informations about each class of hardware : - RAID - SCSI - Ethernet

So, a distribution will be able "out the box" to send warnings and alerts for hardware problems or events, for example : - hard disk failed in an RAID array - ethernet unplugged - etc...

The purpose is also to find a way to get hardware drivers to use an unified way to send warn
