I have an HP Proliant ML110 G9 Server.
Added an HP Smart Array P420 PCI-E card to have real hardware RAID on the server. Everything works fine, but I noted that the P420's processor was extremely hot (I realized by touching the sink). Added an extra cooling and temperature seems to be ok now. I'm not using the HP cooling kit for PCI-E line, it's a home-made cooling solution.
The problem is that I cannot find a way to monitor the controller temperature.
- HP ILO is not showing me information about P420 controller sensors.
- Embedded HP SSA detects the controller well, but no shows temp readings.
- Tried SSACLI utility with same results.
- BIOS, ILO and P420 firmware are up to date.
- Using the ssacli command ctrl slot=3 show I get this:
Smart Array P420 in Slot 3 Bus Interface: PCI Slot: 3 Serial Number: PGKLH0ARH5U16J Cache Serial Number: ABLAA0BRD4XD9X RAID 6 (ADG) Status: Enabled Controller Status: OK Hardware Revision: B Firmware Version: 8.32-0 Rebuild Priority: Low Expand Priority: Medium Surface Scan Delay: 3 secs Surface Scan Mode: Idle Parallel Surface Scan Supported: No Queue Depth: Automatic Monitor and Performance Delay: 60 min Elevator Sort: Enabled Degraded Performance Optimization: Disabled Inconsistency Repair Policy: Disabled Wait for Cache Room: Disabled Surface Analysis Inconsistency Notification: Disabled Post Prompt Timeout: 15 secs Cache Board Present: True Cache Status: OK Cache Ratio: 25% Read / 75% Write Drive Write Cache: Enabled Total Cache Size: 0.5 Total Cache Memory Available: 0.3 No-Battery Write Cache: Enabled Cache Backup Power Source: Capacitors Battery/Capacitor Count: 1 Battery/Capacitor Status: OK SATA NCQ Supported: True Spare Activation Mode: Activate on physical drive failure (default) Number of Ports: 2 Internal only Encryption: Not Set Driver Name: hpsa Driver Version: 3.4.20 Driver Supports SSD Smart Path: True PCI Address (Domain:Bus:Device.Function): 0000:03:00.0 Port Max Phy Rate Limiting Supported: False Host Serial Number: USE445ZDWS Sanitize Erase Supported: False Primary Boot Volume: logicaldrive 1 (600508B1001C2873F3D9BA3495546FF6) Secondary Boot Volume: logicaldrive 1 (600508B1001C2873F3D9BA3495546FF6)
According to SSACLI official user guide that command should return temperature readings but is not doing it.
Any suggestion will be helpful
Thanx in advance!
