NAME

       ipmimonitoring - IPMI monitoring utility

SYNOPSIS

       ipmimonitoring [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

       ipmimonitoring is an IPMI sensor monitoring tool that reports a sensor's record id, sensor
       name, sensor type name, sensor state, sensor reading (if  appropriate),  and  the  current
       sensor event.

       Unlike ipmi-sensors(8), ipmimonitoring will also report a sensor in a NOMINAL, WARNING, or
       CRITICAL state.  The sensor state is an interpreted value  based  on  the  current  sensor
       event.  By  mapping  sensor  readings  into NOMINAL, WARNING, or CRITICAL states, it makes
       monitoring easier across large numbers of nodes. For more general sensor reading  use,  it
       is recommended that users use ipmi-sensors(8).

       The   sensor   state   interpretations   are   determined   by   the   configuration  file
       /etc/ipmi_monitoring_sensors.conf.   See    ipmi_monitoring_sensors.conf(5)    for    more
       information  on  configuring  sensor  interpretations.  Interpretation rules have not been
       written for all  sensors  permutations  and  types.  Subsequently,  there  may  be  output
       differences between ipmi-sensors(8) and ipmimonitoring when sensor interpretations are not
       available. If additional sensor  interpretation  rules  are  needed,  please  contact  the
       FreeIPMI  maintainers.  Default  interpretation  rules  may  not  be  correct  for a given
       motherboard. Users should verify that the default settings match their expectations.

       Some sensors may have a sensor state, reading or event of  "N/A"  if  the  information  is
       unavailable. This is typical of a sensor that is not enabled or not owned by a BMC. Please
       see --bridge-sensors option below to deal with sensors not owned by a  BMC.  Sensors  need
       not  always  report a sensor event. When a sensor event is not present, "NONE" is reported
       for the sensor event.

       Listed  below  are  general  IPMI  options,  tool  specific  options,   trouble   shooting
       information,   workaround   information,   examples,  and  known  issues.  For  a  general
       introduction to FreeIPMI please see freeipmi(7).

GENERAL OPTIONS

       The following options are general options for configuring IPMI communication and executing
       general tool commands.

       -D, --driver-type=IPMIDRIVER
              Specify  the  driver type to use instead of doing an auto selection.  The currently
              available outofband drivers are LAN and LAN_2_0, which perform IPMI  1.5  and  IPMI
              2.0  respectively.  The currently available inband drivers are KCS, SSIF, OPENIPMI,
              and SUNBMC.

       --disable-auto-probe
              Do not probe in-band IPMI devices for default settings.

       --driver-address=DRIVER-ADDRESS
              Specify the in-band driver address to be used instead of the probed value.  DRIVER-
              ADDRESS should be prefixed with "0x" for a hex value and '0' for an octal value.

       --driver-device=DEVICE
              Specify the in-band driver device path to be used instead of the probed path.

       --register-spacing=REGISTER-SPACING
              Specify the in-band driver register spacing instead of the probed value.

       -h, --hostname=IPMIHOST1,IPMIHOST2,...
              Specify the remote host(s) to communicate with. Multiple hostnames may be separated
              by comma or may be specified in a range format; see HOSTRANGED SUPPORT below.

       -u, --username=USERNAME
              Specify the username to use when authenticating  with  the  remote  host.   If  not
              specified,  a null (i.e. anonymous) username is assumed. The user must have atleast
              OPERATOR privileges in order for this tool to operate fully.

       -p, --password=PASSWORD
              Specify the password to use when authenticationg with  the  remote  host.   If  not
              specified,  a  null password is assumed. Maximum password length is 16 for IPMI 1.5
              and 20 for IPMI 2.0.

       -P, --password-prompt
              Prompt for password to avoid possibility of listing it in process lists.

       -k, --k-g=K_G
              Specify the K_g BMC key to use when authenticating with the remote  host  for  IPMI
              2.0. If not specified, a null key is assumed. To input the key in hexadecimal form,
              prefix the string with '0x'. E.g., the key 'abc' can be entered with the either the
              string 'abc' or the string '0x616263'

       -K, --k-g-prompt
              Prompt for k-g to avoid possibility of listing it in process lists.

       --session-timeout=MILLISECONDS
              Specify  the  session  timeout  in milliseconds. Defaults to 20000 milliseconds (20
              seconds) if not specified.

       --retransmission-timeout=MILLISECONDS
              Specify the  packet  retransmission  timeout  in  milliseconds.  Defaults  to  1000
              milliseconds  (1  second)  if  not  specified. The retransmission timeout cannot be
              larger than the session timeout.

       -a, --authentication-type=AUTHENTICATION-TYPE
              Specify  the  IPMI  1.5  authentication  type  to  use.  The  currently   available
              authentication types are NONE, STRAIGHT_PASSWORD_KEY, MD2, and MD5. Defaults to MD5
              if not specified.

       -I, --cipher-suite-id=CIPHER-SUITE-ID
              Specify the IPMI 2.0 cipher suite ID to use. The Cipher Suite ID identifies  a  set
              of  authentication,  integrity,  and confidentiality algorithms to use for IPMI 2.0
              communication. The authentication algorithm identifies the  algorithm  to  use  for
              session  setup, the integrity algorithm identifies the algorithm to use for session
              packet signatures, and the confidentiality algorithm identifies  the  algorithm  to
              use  for  payload  encryption.  Defaults to cipher suite ID 3 if not specified. The
              following cipher suite ids are currently supported:

              0 - Authentication Algorithm = None; Integrity Algorithm  =  None;  Confidentiality
              Algorithm = None

              1   -   Authentication   Algorithm   =   HMAC-SHA1;  Integrity  Algorithm  =  None;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              2 - Authentication Algorithm  =  HMAC-SHA1;  Integrity  Algorithm  =  HMAC-SHA1-96;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              3  -  Authentication  Algorithm  =  HMAC-SHA1;  Integrity Algorithm = HMAC-SHA1-96;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              6  -  Authentication  Algorithm   =   HMAC-MD5;   Integrity   Algorithm   =   None;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              7  -  Authentication  Algorithm  =  HMAC-MD5;  Integrity  Algorithm = HMAC-MD5-128;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              8 - Authentication  Algorithm  =  HMAC-MD5;  Integrity  Algorithm  =  HMAC-MD5-128;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              11   -   Authentication  Algorithm  =  HMAC-MD5;  Integrity  Algorithm  =  MD5-128;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = None

              12  -  Authentication  Algorithm  =  HMAC-MD5;  Integrity  Algorithm   =   MD5-128;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

              17 - Authentication Algorithm = HMAC-SHA256; Integrity Algorithm = HMAC_SHA256_128;
              Confidentiality Algorithm = AES-CBC-128

       -l, --privilege-level=PRIVILEGE-LEVEL
              Specify the privilege level to be used. The currently  available  privilege  levels
              are USER, OPERATOR, and ADMIN. Defaults to OPERATOR if not specified.

       --config-file=FILE
              Specify an alternate configuration file.

       -W WORKAROUNDS, --workaround-flags=WORKAROUNDS
              Specify  workarounds  to  vendor  compliance  issues.  Multiple  workarounds can be
              specified separated by commas. See  WORKAROUNDS  below  for  a  list  of  available
              workarounds.

       --debug
              Turn on debugging.

       -?, --help
              Output a help list and exit.

       --usage
              Output a usage message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Output the program version and exit.

IPMIMONITORING OPTIONS

       The following options are specific to Ipmimonitoring.

       -v, --verbose
              Increase  verbosity  in output. This option will output additional sensors that are
              generally unreadable or uninterpretable.

       -q, --quiet-readings
              Do not output sensor reading values by default. This option is particularly  useful
              if  you  want to use hostranged output across a cluster and want to consolidate the
              output.

       -r "RECORD-IDS-LIST", --record-ids="RECORD-IDS-LIST"
              Specify sensors to show by record id. Multiple  record  ids  can  be  separated  by
              commas   or   spaces.  If  both  --record-ids  and  --sensor-types  are  specified,
              --record-ids takes precedence. A special command line  record  id  of  "all",  will
              indicate  all  record  ids should be shown (may be useful for overriding configured
              defaults).

       -R "RECORD-IDS-LIST", --exclude-record-ids="RECORD-IDS-LIST"
              Specify sensors to not show by record id. Multiple record ids can be  separated  by
              commas  or  spaces.  A  special  command line record id of "none", will indicate no
              record ids should be excluded (may be useful for overriding configured defaults).

       -t "SENSOR-TYPE-LIST", --sensor-types=SENSOR-TYPE-LIST
              Specify sensor types to show sensor outputs for. Multiple types can be separated by
              commas   or   spaces.  If  both  --record-ids  and  --sensor-types  are  specified,
              --record-ids takes precedence.  A special command line type of "all", will indicate
              all types should be shown (may be useful for overriding configured defaults).

       -T "SENSOR-TYPE-LIST", --exclude-sensor-types=SENSOR-TYPE-LIST
              Specify sensor types to not show sensor outputs for. Multiple types can be eparated
              by commas or spaces. A special command line type of "none", will indicate no  types
              should be excluded (may be useful for overriding configured defaults).

       -L, --list-sensor-types
              List sensor types.

       -b, --bridge-sensors
              By  default,  sensors  readings are not attempted for sensors on non-BMC owners. By
              setting this option, sensor requests can be bridged to  non-BMC  owners  to  obtain
              sensor  readings  (experimental).  Bridging  may not work on some interfaces/driver
              types.

       --shared-sensors
              Some sensors share the same sensor data record (SDR). This  is  typically  utilized
              for  system event log (SEL) entries and not for sensor readings. However, there may
              be some motherboards in which this format is utilized for multiple active  sensors,
              or  the  user  simply has interest in seeing the permutation of entries shared by a
              SDR entry. By setting this option, each sensor number shared by a  record  will  be
              iterated over and output.

       --interpret-oem-data
              Attempt  to  interpret  OEM  data,  such as event data, sensor readings, or general
              extra info, etc. If an OEM interpretation is not available, the default output will
              be  generated.  Correctness  of  OEM  interpretations  cannot  be guaranteed due to
              potential changes OEM  vendors  may  make  in  products,  firmware,  etc.  See  OEM
              INTERPRETATION below for confirmed supported motherboard interpretations.

       --ignore-non-interpretable-sensors
              Ignore  non-interpretable  sensors  in  output. Although usually identical, this is
              semantically different that the --ignore-na-sensors option in ipmi-sensors(8).  For
              example, if an interpretation rule has not been written for a sensor, it may not be
              output.

       --entity-sensor-names
              Output sensor names  prefixed  with  their  entity  id  and  instance  number  when
              appropriate.  This  may  be  necessary  on  some motherboards to help identify what
              sensors are referencing. For example, a motherboard may have multiple sensors named
              'TEMP'.  The  entity id and instance number may help clarify which sensor refers to
              "Processor 1" vs. "Processor 2".

       --no-sensor-type-output
              Do not show sensor type output for each entry. On many systems, the sensor type  is
              redundant   to   the   name   of  the  sensor.  This  can  especially  be  true  if
              --entity-sensor-names is specified.  If the sensor name is sufficient,  or  if  the
              sensor type is of no interest to the user, this option can be specified to condense
              output.

       --comma-separated-output
              Output fields in comma separated format.

       --no-header-output
              Do not output column headers. May be useful in scripting.

       --non-abbreviated-units
              Output  non-abbreviated  units  (e.g.  'Amps'  instead  of   'A').   May   aid   in
              disambiguation of units (e.g. 'C' for Celsius or Coulombs).

       --legacy-output
              Output in legacy format. Newer options may not be applicable to leagcy output.

       --sensor-config-file=FILE
              Specify an alternate sensor configuration file.

SDR CACHE OPTIONS

       This tool requires access to the sensor data repository (SDR) cache for general operation.
       By default, SDR data will be downloaded and cached on the  local  machine.  The  following
       options apply to the SDR cache.

       -f, --flush-cache
              Flush  a  cached  version  of  the  sensor  data repository (SDR) cache. The SDR is
              typically cached for faster subsequent access. However, it may need to  be  flushed
              and re-generated if the SDR has been updated on a system.

       -Q, --quiet-cache
              Do  not  output  information  about  cache  creation/deletion.  May  be  useful  in
              scripting.

       --sdr-cache-directory=DIRECTORY
              Specify an alternate directory for sensor data repository (SDR) caches to be stored
              or read from. Defaults to the home directory if not specified.

       --sdr-cache-recreate
              If  the SDR cache is out of date or invalid, automatically recreate the sensor data
              repository (SDR) cache. This option may be useful for scripting purposes.

HOSTRANGED OPTIONS

       The following options manipulate hostranged  output.  See  HOSTRANGED  SUPPORT  below  for
       additional information on hostranges.

       -B, --buffer-output
              Buffer  hostranged output. For each node, buffer standard output until the node has
              completed its IPMI operation. When specifying  this  option,  data  may  appear  to
              output  slower to the user since the the entire IPMI operation must complete before
              any data can be output.  See HOSTRANGED SUPPORT below for additional information.

       -C, --consolidate-output
              Consolidate hostranged  output.  The  complete  standard  output  from  every  node
              specified  will  be consolidated so that nodes with identical output are not output
              twice. A header will list those nodes  with  the  consolidated  output.  When  this
              option  is  specified, no output can be seen until the IPMI operations to all nodes
              has completed. If  the  user  breaks  out  of  the  program  early,  all  currently
              consolidated  output  will  be  dumped. See HOSTRANGED SUPPORT below for additional
              information.

       -F, --fanout
              Specify multiple host fanout. A "sliding window" (or fanout) algorithm is used  for
              parallel IPMI communication so that slower nodes or timed out nodes will not impede
              parallel communication. The maximum number of threads available at the same time is
              limited by the fanout. The default is 64.

       -E, --eliminate
              Eliminate  hosts  determined  as undetected by ipmidetect.  This attempts to remove
              the common issue of hostranged execution timing out  due  to  several  nodes  being
              removed  from service in a large cluster. The ipmidetectd daemon must be running on
              the node executing the command.

       --always-prefix
              Always prefix output, even if only one host is specified or communicating  in-band.
              This  option  is primarily useful for scripting purposes. Option will be ignored if
              specified with the -C option.

HOSTRANGED SUPPORT

       Multiple hosts can be input either as an explicit comma separated  lists  of  hosts  or  a
       range  of  hostnames in the general form: prefix[n-m,l-k,...], where n < m and l < k, etc.
       The later form should not be confused with  regular  expression  character  classes  (also
       denoted  by  []).  For  example,  foo[19]  does  not  represent  foo1  or foo9, but rather
       represents a degenerate range: foo19.

       This range syntax is meant only as a  convenience  on  clusters  with  a  prefixNN  naming
       convention  and  specification  of  ranges  should not be considered necessary -- the list
       foo1,foo9 could be specified as such, or by the range foo[1,9].

       Some examples of range usage follow:
           foo[01-05] instead of foo01,foo02,foo03,foo04,foo05
           foo[7,9-10] instead of foo7,foo9,foo10
           foo[0-3] instead of foo0,foo1,foo2,foo3

       As a reminder to the reader, some shells will interpret brackets ([  and  ])  for  pattern
       matching.  Depending  on  your  shell,  it may be necessary to enclose ranged lists within
       quotes.

       When multiple hosts are specified by the user, a thread will be executed for each host  in
       parallel  up to the configured fanout (which can be adjusted via the -F option). This will
       allow communication to large numbers of nodes far more quickly than if done in serial.

       By default, standard output from each node specified will  be  output  with  the  hostname
       prepended  to  each  line.  Although this output is readable in many situations, it may be
       difficult to read in other situations. For example, output  from  multiple  nodes  may  be
       mixed together. The -B and -C options can be used to change this default.

       In-band  IPMI  Communication  will  be  used  when the host "localhost" is specified. This
       allows the user to add the localhost into the hostranged output.

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING

       Most often, IPMI problems are due to configuration  problems.  Inband  IPMI  problems  are
       typically  caused  by  improperly  configured  drivers or non-standard BMCs. IPMI over LAN
       problems involve a misconfiguration of the remote machine's BMC.   Double  check  to  make
       sure  the  following  are configured properly in the remote machine's BMC: IP address, MAC
       address, subnet mask, username, user enablement, user privilege, password, LAN  privilege,
       LAN enablement, and allowed authentication type(s). For IPMI 2.0 connections, double check
       to make sure the cipher suite privilege(s) and K_g key are configured properly.  The  bmc-
       config(8) tool can be used to check and/or change these configuration settings.

       The following are common issues for given error messages:

       "username  invalid" - The username entered (or a NULL username if none was entered) is not
       available on the remote machine. It  may  also  be  possible  the  remote  BMC's  username
       configuration is incorrect.

       "password  invalid" - The password entered (or a NULL password if none was entered) is not
       correct. It may also be possible the password for the user is not correctly configured  on
       the remote BMC.

       "password  verification  timeout"  -  Password  verification  has  timed out.  A "password
       invalid" error  (described  above)  or  a  generic  "session  timeout"  (described  below)
       occurred.  During this point in the protocol it cannot be differentiated which occurred.

       "k_g  invalid"  -  The  K_g  key  entered  (or  a NULL K_g key if none was entered) is not
       correct. It may also be possible the K_g key is not correctly  configured  on  the  remote
       BMC.

       "privilege level insufficient" - An IPMI command requires a higher user privilege than the
       one authenticated with. Please try to authenticate  with  a  higher  privilege.  This  may
       require authenticating to a different user which has a higher maximum privilege.

       "privilege  level  cannot  be  obtained  for  this  user"  -  The  privilege level you are
       attempting to authenticate with is higher than the maximum allowed for this  user.  Please
       try  again  with  a  lower  privilege. It may also be possible the maximum privilege level
       allowed for a user is not configured properly on the remote BMC.

       "authentication type unavailable for attempted privilege level" - The authentication  type
       you  wish to authenticate with is not available for this privilege level. Please try again
       with an alternate authentication type  or  alternate  privilege  level.  It  may  also  be
       possible  the  available  authentication types you can authenticate with are not correctly
       configured on the remote BMC.

       "cipher suite id unavailable" - The cipher suite id you wish to authenticate with  is  not
       available  on  the  remote BMC. Please try again with an alternate cipher suite id. It may
       also be possible the available cipher suite ids are not correctly configured on the remote
       BMC.

       "ipmi  2.0 unavailable" - IPMI 2.0 was not discovered on the remote machine. Please try to
       use IPMI 1.5 instead.

       "connection timeout" - Initial IPMI communication failed. A number of potential errors are
       possible,  including an invalid hostname specified, an IPMI IP address cannot be resolved,
       IPMI is not enabled on the remote server, the  network  connection  is  bad,  etc.  Please
       verify configuration and connectivity.

       "session  timeout"  -  The  IPMI  session  has timed out. Please reconnect.  If this error
       occurs often, you may wish to increase the retransmission timeout. Some  remote  BMCs  are
       considerably slower than others.

       "device  not  found" - The specified device could not be found. Please check configuration
       or inputs and try again.

       "driver timeout" - Communication with the driver or  device  has  timed  out.  Please  try
       again.

       "message  timeout"  -  Communication  with  the driver or device has timed out. Please try
       again.

       "BMC busy" - The BMC is currently busy. It may be processing information or have too  many
       simultaneous sessions to manage. Please wait and try again.

       "could  not  find  inband  device"  -  An  inband device could not be found.  Please check
       configuration or specify specific device or driver on the command line.

       Please see WORKAROUNDS below to also if there are any vendor specific bugs that have  been
       discovered and worked around.

IPMIMONITORING TROUBLESHOOTING

       The following are common issues for given error messages specifically for ipmimonitoring.

       "sensor  config  file  parse  error" - A parse error was found in the libipmimonitoring(3)
       sensor configuration file. Please see libipmimonitoring(3).

WORKAROUNDS

       With so many different vendors implementing their own IPMI  solutions,  different  vendors
       may  implement  their  IPMI  protocols  incorrectly.  The  following lists the workarounds
       currently available to handle discovered compliance issues.

       When possible, workarounds have been implemented so they will be transparent to the  user.
       However, some will require the user to specify a workaround be used via the -W option.

       The hardware listed below may only indicate the hardware that a problem was discovered on.
       Newer versions of hardware may fix the problems indicated  below.  Similar  machines  from
       vendors  may  or  may  not  exhibit the same problems. Different vendors may license their
       firmware from the same IPMI firmware developer, so it may be worthwhile to try workarounds
       listed below even if your motherboard is not listed.

       "assumeio"  - This workaround option will assume inband interfaces communicate with system
       I/O rather than being memory-mapped. This will work around  systems  that  report  invalid
       base addresses. Those hitting this issue may see "device not supported" or "could not find
       inband device" errors.  Issue observed on HP ProLiant DL145 G1.

       "idzero" - This workaround option will allow empty session  IDs  to  be  accepted  by  the
       client.  It  works around IPMI sessions that report empty session IDs to the client. Those
       hitting this issue may see "session timeout" errors. Issue observed  on  Tyan  S2882  with
       M3289 BMC.

       "unexpectedauth"  -  This workaround option will allow unexpected non-null authcodes to be
       checked as though they were expected. It works around an issue when packets  contain  non-
       null   authentication   data  when  they  should  be  null  due  to  disabled  per-message
       authentication. Those hitting this issue may see "session timeout" errors. Issue  observed
       on Dell PowerEdge 2850,SC1425. Confirmed fixed on newer firmware.

       "forcepermsg" - This workaround option will force per-message authentication to be used no
       matter what is advertised by the remote system. It works around an issue when  per-message
       authentication is advertised as disabled on the remote system, but it is actually required
       for the protocol. Those hitting this  issue  may  see  "session  timeout"  errors.   Issue
       observed on IBM eServer 325.

       "endianseq"  - This workaround option will flip the endian of the session sequence numbers
       to allow the session to continue properly.  It works  around  IPMI  1.5  session  sequence
       numbers  that  are  the  wrong  endian. Those hitting this issue may see "session timeout"
       errors.  Issue observed on some Sun ILOM 1.0/2.0 (depends on service processor endian).

       "authcap" - This workaround option will  skip  early  checks  for  username  capabilities,
       authentication  capabilities, and K_g support and allow IPMI authentication to succeed. It
       works around multiple issues in which the remote system does not properly report  username
       capabilities, authentication capabilities, or K_g status. Those hitting this issue may see
       "username invalid", "authentication type unavailable for attempted  privilege  level",  or
       "k_g   invalid"   errors.    Issue   observed   on  Asus  P5M2/P5MT-R/RS162-E4/RX4,  Intel
       SR1520ML/X38ML, and Sun Fire 2200/4150/4450 with ELOM.

       "intel20" - This workaround option will work around several Intel IPMI 2.0  authentication
       issues.  The  issues  covered include padding of usernames, and password truncation if the
       authentication algorithm is HMAC-MD5-128. Those  hitting  this  issue  may  see  "username
       invalid",  "password  invalid", or "k_g invalid" errors. Issue observed on Intel SE7520AF2
       with Intel Server Management Module (Professional Edition).

       "supermicro20" - This workaround option will  work  around  several  Supermicro  IPMI  2.0
       authentication  issues  on  motherboards  w/  Peppercon  IPMI firmware. The issues covered
       include handling invalid length authentication codes. Those hitting  this  issue  may  see
       "password  invalid"  errors.  Issue observed on Supermicro H8QME with SIMSO daughter card.
       Confirmed fixed on newerver firmware.

       "sun20" - This workaround option will work work around several Sun IPMI 2.0 authentication
       issues. The issues covered include invalid lengthed hash keys, improperly hashed keys, and
       invalid cipher suite records. Those hitting this issue may see "password invalid" or  "bmc
       error"  errors.   Issue  observed  on  Sun Fire 4100/4200/4500 with ILOM.  This workaround
       automatically includes the "opensesspriv" workaround.

       "opensesspriv" - This workaround option will slightly alter FreeIPMI's IPMI 2.0 connection
       protocol  to  workaround  an  invalid  hashing  algorithm  used  by the remote system. The
       privilege level sent during the Open Session stage of an IPMI 2.0 connection is  used  for
       hashing  keys instead of the privilege level sent during the RAKP1 connection stage. Those
       hitting this issue may see "password invalid", "k_g  invalid",  or  "bad  rmcpplus  status
       code"  errors.   Issue  observed  on Sun Fire 4100/4200/4500 with ILOM, Inventec 5441/Dell
       Xanadu II, Supermicro X8DTH, Supermicro X8DTG, and Intel S5500WBV/Penguin Relion 700. This
       workaround is automatically triggered with the "sun20" workaround.

       "integritycheckvalue" - This workaround option will work around an invalid integrity check
       value during an IPMI 2.0 session establishment when using Cipher Suite ID 0. The integrity
       check  value  should be 0 length, however the remote motherboard responds with a non-empty
       field. Those hitting this issue may see "k_g invalid" errors. Issue observed on Supermicro
       X8DTG, Supermicro X8DTU, and Intel S5500WBV/Penguin Relion 700.

OEM INTERPRETATION

       The  following motherboards are confirmed to have atleast some support by the --interpret-
       oem-data option. While highly probable the OEM  data  interpretations  would  work  across
       other motherboards by the same manufacturer, there are no guarantees.

       Currently None

EXAMPLES

       # ipmimonitoring

       Show all sensors on the local machine.

       # ipmimonitoring --record-ids="82 11 7 102"

       # ipmimonitoring --sensor-types=TEMPERATURE

       Show all sensors in TEMPERATURE type on the local machine.

       # ipmimonitoring -h ahost -u myusername -p mypassword

       Show all sensors on a remote machine using IPMI over LAN.

       Show all sensors across a cluster using IPMI over LAN.

KNOWN ISSUES

       On  older  operating  systems, if you input your username, password, and other potentially
       security relevant information on the command line, this information may be  discovered  by
       other  users  when using tools like the ps(1) command or looking in the /proc file system.
       It is generally more secure to input password information with options like the -P  or  -K
       options.  Configuring  security  relevant  information  in the FreeIPMI configuration file
       would also be an appropriate way to hide this information.

       In order to prevent brute force attacks, some BMCs will  temporarily  "lock  up"  after  a
       number  of  remote  authentication  errors.  You  may need to wait awhile in order to this
       temporary "lock up" to pass before you may authenticate again.

       Some sensors may be output because the owner of the sensor is not the BMC. To  attempt  to
       bridge  sensors  and  access  sensors  not  on  the  BMC,  users may wish to try the -b or
       --bridge-sensors options.
