DESCRIPTION

       The Libipmimonitoring implements a high level sensor monitoring API for
       IPMI  sensors.  The goal of this library is to abstract away all of the
       underlying IPMI details away from the user and map IPMI sensor readings
       into  NOMINAL,  WARNING, or CRITICAL states. By mapping sensor readings
       into NOMINAL, WARNING, or CRITICAL states, it makes monitoring  sensors
       easier  across  large  numbers  of nodes. An iterator interface is also
       provided that allows the user to iterate through sensor values, groups,
       units, and states.

       In  order  to  improve efficiency, SDR data will be cached on the host.
       By default it is cached in /var/cache/ipmimonitoringsdrcache.

       Interpretation rules have not been written for all sensors permutations
       and  types.  If  sensor interpretation rules are needed, please contact
       the developers as listed below.

STATE CONFIGURATION

       The interpretation of sensors is  configurable  via  the  configuration
       file      stored     at     /etc/ipmi_monitoring_sensors.conf.      See
       ipmi_monitoring_sensors.conf(5) for  more  information  on  configuring
       sensor interpretations.
