Munin plugin: ipmitool_sensor_

ipmitool_sensor_ is a wildcard-plugin to monitor sensors by using ipmitool.

Install and Configuration

The possible wildcard values are the following: fan, temp, volt. So you would create symlinks to this plugin called ipmitool_sensor_fan, ipmitool_sensor_temp, and ipmitool_sensor_volt.

ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_ /etc/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_fan
ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_ /etc/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_temp
ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_ /etc/munin/plugins/ipmitool_sensor_volt

Add the following to your /etc/munin/plugin-conf.d/munin-node:

Note: When you use this, the threshold provided by the sensor board is not used.

    user root
    timeout 20

If you want to use "ipmitool sdr", add the following:

    user root
    timeout 20
    env.ipmitool_options sdr
