Hi folks,

I have some older Dell PowerEdge 850's.  These guys have IPMI 1.1
capabilities.  I cannot seem to find a way to interrogate these systems and
get the status of the network interfaces.  In particular I want to see if
there are dropped packets, bad frames, collisions...  That kind of thing.

Going through the OS is not an option as they are running as an embedded

Is this possible to get this data via IPMI?
