These are essentially small, yet complex pieces of software that control the way the different components operate.
And just like every piece of software, drivers can be faulty (especially early versions) or fail to extract the full potential from hardware. For instance, if you experience stuttering when listening to Spotify, strange bluescreens, games that stutter (low FPS), or weird connection messages like this: The next screen shows you a list of all your installed applications. But it doesn’t have the option to filter out unused applications.
As Dev Ops is slowly taking over the IT landscape, its vital that IT pros understand it before jumping right into the movement. The i DRAC is compatible with every server operating system or hypervisor.
OSMA is not part of the Open Manage administration suite, however -- it is a prerequisite agent for using the suite.
Quickly and easily perform initial provisioning and ongoing administration of system images and driver updates across diverse hardware platforms — reducing operational costs and ensuring end user productivity.
Both of these problems stem from faulty drivers, which can also lead to poor performance.
While Windows – usually – does a decent job of keeping most drivers up-to-date, you should still keep an eye on three main driver types to make sure devices are running at peak efficiency.
The OSMA agent, installed on the server, is another method to access Open Manage.
It identifies Open Manage software and other supported modules on Power Edge and Power Vault servers.
These are video cards, soundcards/soundchips, and chipsets.
As you hunt for new drivers, these three are the ones you want to ensure get updated and which will improve the quality time you spend with your PC.
This version is available on Windows and Linux (X86 and X86_64).

Lifecycle Controller is firmware embedded into the i DRAC, allowing administrators to better configure hardware.
