Fujitsu Workstations: Memory

Supported Agents: Linux

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


One service is created for each memory module which has an attached module.
