While I have not done much with the SMicro implementation, I have worked
with the Tyan SMDC.
Tyan's SMDC (Server Management Daughter Card) utilizes a separate discrete
processor for these tasks.
It supports monitoring and control over the onboard ethernet and/or
serialports, and works pretty nicely.
It does not generate CPU load or time loss.
