This check uses the information of sensors provided via IPMI. The current management board monitoring reports states about all available fans, temperature sensors and power supplies.

Note that IPMI provides four states: 'ok', 'non-critical', 'critical' and 'non-recoverable'. The default Checkmk behaviour is to map 'ok' to OK, 'non-critical' to WARN and 'critical' and 'non-recoverable' to CRIT. However, some manufacturers choose to display both 'ok' and 'non-critical' as normal on their provided tools. If you want Checkmk to behave similarly, you can set up a corresponding "Service State Translation" rule.


The name of the sensor as provided via IPMI.


One service is created for each sensor that are reported by the management board of a host via IPMI.
