IPMI Sensor Monitoring Plugin

Post by thegreatadmin »

Hi Robbie,

it is possible to add IPMI support to NEMS?
The german server builder Thomas Krenn provides an IPMI Sensor Monitoring Plugin.
https://github.com/thomas-krenn/check_ipmi_sensor_v3
(https://www.thomas-krenn.com/de/wiki/IP ... ing_Plugin)
It offers live hardware information (temp, fan speed, powersupply,...) via IPMI from serverboards.
I am really missing it on NEMS.

Thanks.

Greetings from Germany.

Hi from Canada, thegreatadmin!

Sure thing. I've added it to the to-do list for NEMS 1.5. It'll be released within the next month or so.

Cheers!

The following checkcommands have been added to NEMS 1.5:
check_ipmi_sensor_driver_slot
check_ipmi_sensor_fan
check_ipmi_sensor_memory
check_ipmi_sensor_power_supply
check_ipmi_sensor_power_unit

If you are able, I would appreciate some real-world testing. Let me know if you're able to beta test NEMS 1.5 to ensure everything works with the new IPMI sensors.

Thanks,
Robbie

There is a serious bug with FreeIPMI 1.6.3-1. It has therefore been removed from NEMS Linux 1.5 until it is fixed upstream. Please see the NEMS Linux 1.5 changelogs for more information.

I just started using NEMS and wanted to monitor 4 HP ILOs that have been configured for ipmi.
