I'm using FreeIPMI to measure power consumption with --get-system-power-statistics on servers which contain GPUs. Will the returned power consumption in watts include that of the GPUs? The documentation is a bit vague on this.



FreeIPMI maintainer here. The ipmi-dcmi command's --get-system-power-statistics command comes from the "Get Power Reading" command in the DCMI specification. Unfortunately, the description in the DCMI specification is equally vague, so it's likely just up to the implementer.
