HMC to send updates on RMC state

Tools like PowerVC poll the HMC on RMC state changes for VMs. With that it takes some time until PowerVC notices that the RMC state for a VM is okay.

A different way would be if the the HMC can send RMC updates to tools like PowerVC.

    Marking this as delivered for now since the events capability is available for HMC Rest API.

    I think this is what I was looking for. In this case I will open an RFE that PowerVC shall make use of it to speed up RMC state changes in PowerVC.

    Hi Stephen,

    There is already a mechanism to register for events via HMC Rest APIs which can be used to listed for RMC state changes as well. It depends on the Rest API clients (like PowerVC) to make use of the event mechanism, if needed. Can you please let us know if this is the information you were looking for?
