I have an HP StorageWorks MSA Storage P2000 G3 SAS array.

show sensor-status gives something like

# show sensor-status

Temperature Loc: right-PSU        40 C     OK

is one of the values the CPU/FPGA temperature? Or, if not, how do I get it?

Thanks!

This is a strange request. Why are you concerned about the temperature of the CPU of one component of this SAN, versus overall system and ambient temperature?

(edit) It looks like you have a cooling problem. Those are slightly high temperatures!

Either way, here's the output from my HP P2000 G3 SAS storage unit... The first four values are for the CPU's and FPGA units for each of the two controllers in the system. You can also pull this information via SNMP against the controller IP address(es):

Thank you! I'm wondering why I don't have those CPU/FPGA lines in the beginning. Is it perhaps due to a different controller version? Mine is TS230P007. Or do I really lack those sensors in my system? You're right, I have a cooling problem, that's why I'm concerned about the particular sensor values. The "Onboard" danger threshold is at 70 C, which is OK, but I can't figure out the temperature of the CPU. –  Pavel Sep 6 '12 at 10:23
    
Yeah, you should have those sensors. Try to reset each controller, one at a time, and see if that brings the sensors online. –  ewwhite Sep 6 '12 at 19:42

A P2000 doesn't just have one big CPU that does everything, it has a number of parts to increase the units reliability and you're seeing those parts listed there. There are two controllers in your box (some have only one) and each has a number of sensors for the controllers and one more for both the port (disk) controller and the cache (memory) controllers - so you have the lot already.

Thanks! I'm aware of the complexity of the overall storage system, I just need to check how close the sensor values are to the danger thresholds. Here I found the thresholds (Table 10 on page 63), now I need to know the real temperature. –  Pavel Sep 6 '12 at 10:26
