I've got two Dell PE R710's -
- A has a single socket and 3 DIMMs in one bank
- B has both sockets and 6 (2 banks @ 3 DIMMs) filled
The output from "ipmitool sdr entity 8" confuses me - according to the OpenIPMI documentation these are supposed to represent DIMM slots.
Output from A (1 CPU, 3 DIMMS, 1 bank.):
~#: ipmitool sdr entity 8 Temp | 0Ah | ok | 8.1 | 27 degrees C Temp | 0Bh | ns | 8.1 | Disabled Temp | 0Ch | ucr | 8.1 | 52 degrees C
Output from B (2 CPUs, 3 DIMMS in both banks, 6 total):
~#: ipmitool sdr entity 8 Temp | 0Ah | ok | 8.1 | 26 degrees C Temp | 0Bh | ok | 8.1 | 25 degrees C Temp | 0Ch | ucr | 8.1 | 51 degrees C
Now, I'm starting to think this output isn't DIMMS themselves, but maybe a sensor for each bank and something else? (Otherwise, shouldn't I see 6 readings for the one with both banks active?)
The CPU's aren't near 50 deg C, so I doubt the significantly higher reading is due to proximity - Is anyone able to explain what I'm seeing?
Does the output from my
ipmitool sdr entity 8 -v here on pastebin seem to hint at different sensors?
The sensor naming conventions are poor - seems like a dell thing.
