Console servers are an integral part of any computer network. A console server makes it possible to manage monitor servers and other network devices by allowing access to these gadgets. This is achieved through console ports of the devices or over the computer network. Access to the network devices and servers is coordinated by a console manager, even if the network is experiencing a downtime. Access to the console is of utmost importance because in most computer systems, error messages are sent to the console in case of a breakdown.
