we have thought about it but haven't done it yet. since bb4 is basically
a collection of shell scripts, we were going to use the OMSA on each
machine and write a script to parse omreport <some subsystem> <somequery>
and return appropriate values.
similarly (with lack of time.. sigh) we wanted to do something to pull
temperatures/voltages and other useful info out using omreport to throw into
cricket/mrtg as a secondary layer behind bb4 so we could get nice visual
graphs over time to try and help with debugging/spotting anomalous (sp?)
if you search the lists (and recently) there has been some contrib
scripts (checked domsch.com/linux?) for pulling monitoring stuff out
