Or perhaps the opposite — as mentioned in comments the G is usually built into the BMC, possibly giving the BMC completely direct access to the G’s video buffer.

Intel Xeon E v2 40x 3. I will evenutally upgrade the card but in the mean timeany suggestions on adding more resolutions? That Matrox GeR2 is not a separate video card.

With it, you can connect completely different devices to a single KVM switch network-based or notand oinux the really simple cases you don’t need to touch the management controller at all. A Matrox G is way more powerful than needed for a server. Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

As for the management unit, do not ignore it unless you don’t plug in its network port.

Matrox chips have always been very popular for this purpose and this particular one was still used in in new Dell servers and probably in some other brands as well. I had assumed it was actually a reimplementation of the register-level linud in the way that all GPUs can do basic VGA without being based on something frombut it turns out Matrox do licence the G IP to chip designers.


If only the whole BMC mahrox were rock-solid, too They mostly deal with regular CPU computing matgox networking.

Linux Mint 17, Debian 8 Posts: That too is important on a server. So I would guess that the old Matrox video adapters are used for this because they store the video buffer in system RAM instead of their own VRAM and use a sufficiently simple data layout that the BMC can decipher it without needing arcane knowledge about the GPU’s internals, nor without any help from the main OS. It is cheap, very reliable, easy to integrate and matrrox excellent text console display ability and decent 2D graphics ability.

Anyway, if you find it convenient to use a KVM or whatever, sure go ahead with that, but straight serial has a lot of advantages e. General-purpose servers don’t need a modern GPU – just enough to show a medium-sized console desktop. Because a server does not need a high-performance GPU.

So the decision had probably been logical by the time of purchase. Matrox “SE” drivers have a standard interface that doesn’t require.
