how can I get all sensors on a SM JBOD via IPMI? When I use the IPMIView from Supermicro I see a lot of them, some of these not, specialy PSU (PMBus) things like Temperature, Voltage, etc. I need this for monitoring this sensors also.

Can somebody tell me the command how to get this information also? Thanks in advance

    Read Zabbix documentation about LLD (low level discovery) and then create your Template. – Mikhail Khirgiy Sep 14 '17 at 5:23
  • @MikhailKhirgiy, first, zabbix dont support LLD for IPMI, second is, that i got more informations with IPMIView than ipmitool and thats the problem, how i get the other informations? – colttt Sep 14 '17 at 10:02

Yes, Zabbix isn't supporting LLD for IPMI hosts now. It will be done in the feature (only via ipmitool). But, you can write your own script for LLD on Zabbix agent by using SMCIPMITool console program. As example you can take my Zabbix NTP servers monitoring template.

  • ok, thanks for this hint, but still the question, how can I get the information that I got from IPMIView/SMCIPMITool? Use supermicro a closed source/secret protocol to get this informations? – colttt Sep 15 '17 at 12:27
  • No, the ipmi protocol is the same. Supermicro use own enterprise specific objects. Your script must read the output of SMCIPMITool command. – Mikhail Khirgiy Sep 15 '17 at 13:10
