IPMI sensors via freeipmi

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

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. The current implementation of the agents sends the status of all available fans, temperature sensors and power supplies.


A combination of sensor group and sensor name, with spaces replaced by underscores in the sensor name. For example Fan_FAN2_CPU for a sensor of the group Fan with the name FAN2 CPU.


All sensors that are not in the state [Unknown] are automatically inventorized.
