Title: DETECTION OF CABLE CONNECTIONS
Abstract:
An example device includes a physical interface to connect to a system. The device also includes a power source to deliver power to a diagnostic portion of the system via the physical interface. The diagnostic portion draws a small amount of power. The power source delivers the power based on the system not receiving power from an internal source. The device also includes a reporting engine to communicatively couple to the system via the physical interface. The reporting engine retrieves an indication of whether a cable in the system is connected.
