Dear PRTG team,
On some Supermicro Motherboard, the CPU temperatures are reported as "Low", "Medium", "High" or "Overheat". The current (beta) IMPI Sensor does not return any CPU temperature(s) on such motherboards.
I've been doing some reading on the CPU temp.display on such boards and I found this in a FAQ on the Supermicro website:
Dear support, I'm using a IPMI tool to read the CPU temperature, but I can't understand the reported value. For example, I see something like the following: CPU1 Temp | 0x0 | discrete | 0x0000| na | na | na | na | na | na Which column represents the CPU temperature?
Answer: The 4th column is for CPU temperature, which will be reported as one of four values as follows: 0x0000 low (CPU temperature low) 0x0100 medium (CPU temperature medium) 0x0200 high (CPU temperature high) 0x0400 overheat (CPU has overheated)
Could you implement this in the next release of the IPMI sensor?
Kind regards, Steve
