[0054] 由此可知,管理单元只有在第一次连接至特定机架时,需要通过网络协议(如SSH 协议)从机架取得状态信息表并建立自动程序(即图2中的步骤S102-S104或图3中的步骤S206-S208),之后,机架便会主动地刷清管理单元上状态信息表的内容。 Step 2 [0054] It can be seen, the management unit only when the first connection to a particular rack, needs to obtain the status information table through a network protocol (such as the SSH protocol) and to establish an automatic program from the rack (i.e., FIG S102- step 3 S104 or FIG. S206-S208), then, the frame will clear the contents of the active brush status information table management unit.

[0055] 如此一来,便可省下反复的登陆认证手续与等待时间,让使用者或系统管理者可更方便地掌握机架服务器系统的整体状态。 [0055] In this way, we can save repeatedly landing certification procedures and waiting time, allowing the user or system administrator can more easily grasp the overall state of the rack server system.

[0056] 虽然本发明已以实施方式揭示如上,然其并非用以限定本发明,任何本领域的普通技术人员,在不脱离本发明的精神和范围内,当可作各种更动与润饰,因此本发明的保护范围当视后附的申请专利范围所界定者为准。 [0056] While the invention has been disclosed in the above embodiment, they are not intended to limit the present invention, any of those of ordinary skill in the art, without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention, when the various changes or modifications may be made , Therefore, the scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims which are the scope of their equivalents.
