+Changing performance level via BMC Interface
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+It is possible to change SST-PP level using out of band (OOB) agent (Via some
+remote management console, through BMC "Baseboard Management Controller"
+interface). This mode is supported from the Sapphire Rapids processor
+generation. The kernel and tool change to support this mode is added to Linux

+is "v1.12" to support this feature, which is part of Linux kernel version 5.18.
+
+To support such configuration, this tool can be used as a daemon. Add
