I'm fairly happy with the output of dmidecode (though I prefer lshw, 
which has an XML output format) and ipmitool.  These tools will dump the 
"service tag #", fan speeds, temperature, power supply status, and some 
other goodies (it would be nice if Dell provided a "cheatsheet" mapping 
"Fan 1" to where it is physically, etc).

It appears that an OSMA version for 64bit still doesn't exist; does it 
really offer any additional data that the above tools don't already 
output?  Thanks!
