Welcome to the OCP RAS API workstream. This is a CLA workstream of the OCP Hardware Management Project
This workstream is under CLA so in order to participate we need to sign a RAS API CLA .
Disclaimer: Please do not submit any confidential information to the Project Community.
All presentation materials, proposals, meeting minutes and/or supporting documents can be utilize for the upcoming RAS API specification.
If you have any questions please contact OCP.

Workstream Overview[edit]

This workstream will be working on creating the RAS API specification.

Problem Statement[edit]

Having no industry standard for RAS management makes each HW vendor solution specific and resource intensive; while delaying RAS feature adoption.
When creating a specification to solve the standardization problem some major pain points need to be considered:

  • Specification for common abstraction for RAS between software and hardware that is vendor agnostic as well as platform agnostic.
  • Connectivity for RAS management should allow co-existence of In Band and Out of Band methods
  • Logging mechanism must solve RAS unique problems (Error storms, error sampling, etc.)
  • RAS feature abstraction should be generic enough to have open source drivers that can do a reasonable job at managing RAS;
    while leaving the opportunity for hardware vendor to differentiate and keep innovating.


The current baseline is Revision 0.8. We plan to meet with companies that agree with this objective in order to draft a complete specification that solves the problem statement.
