Monitoring sensor readings from command line

Prerequisites:

  • Linux
  • IPMI capable motherboard
  • ipmitool or IPMICFG
  • watch

Instructions:

1. Run the following command to check that the IPMI sensors are detected:

  • ipmitool sdr elist

or

  • ipmicfg -sdr

2. If the sensors are properly detected, parse them through watch:

  • watch 'ipmitool sdr elist'

or

  • watch 'ipmicfg -sdr'

The watch command will update every 1 second by default. If you'd like to extend the refresh window, use the -n option. For example, set it to refresh every 2 seconds:

  • watch -n 2 'ipmitool sdr elist'
