We would like to monitor the temperature on our Dell servers. I've used the built-in OIDDLIBs as well as a smaller one supplied in this forum. When I apply these to a live server I get anywhere from 2 to 6 different sensors. All of them are labeled like:
cooling device: 1/cooling device reading: 1
Which means nothing. How do I tell what each of the sensors is actually measuring? It is CPU2? The BMC Ambient temp? Planar or riser temp?
Also, from reading the MIB file I know that each of these temp sensors has settings for high and low warning and critical settings. Does the OIDLIB automatically used these settings to set thresholds for the sensor?
If not I'd like to formally request a Dell temp sensor that applies the proper string name to the sensor and uses the hi/lo thresholds from the mib for that sensor.
Something that's in the works perhaps?
