Memory module status using IPMI via freeipmi
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check reads the memory module status information from IPMI on
FSC TX 120 systems (and maybe others).
This check uses the information of the utility ipmi-sensors
from the utility package freeipmi. You need your host kernel
to support IPMI and have ipmi-sensors in your executable path for
the agent to send that data.
Addinionally you need to extend your agent on the monitored system
using a check_mk_agent_plugin named fsc_ipmi_mem_status.sh. This
agent plugin can be found in the doc directory of check_mk.
To enable this plugin simply copy it to the plugins directory of
check_mk_agent on your target machines. By default the directory
is located here: /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins
This plugin has been developed on FSC TX 120 but may also work on
other FSC hardware platforms. Please tell us when you find some
other software where this plugin outputs valid information
The plugin has been tested with freeipmi 0.5.1 and 0.8.4. Other
versions may work too but have not been used during implementation.
This is the sensor name as reported by ipmi-sensors command e.g. DIMM-1A
Each memory module which has an attached module results in one service which will be named IPMI DIMM-*.
