IPMI Management board: Sensors

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

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 Check-MK 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 Check-MK to behave similarly, you can set up a corresponding "Service State Translation" rule.

Item

The name of the sensor as provided via IPMI.

Discovery
