I don't know about your earlier questions, but the SSP provides in-band and
out-of-band management capabilities via an optional daughter card with a DB-25
serial port and a 10/100 ethernet port. It lets you do things from the very
simple like power cycling the system to complex stuff like adjust clustering
and failover stuff for the high-end E10000 and E15000 Starfire boxes. Hardware
fault tolerance monitoring, failure alerts, and so forth.
Some of the capabilities are OS-independent, but the fancier stuff probably
wants you to be running Solaris to use.
