"On my new PE 2950 I want to monitor Temperature of CPU, HDD, System.
I tried to find temperatures using omsreport, but I found nothing.
Could I receive this information using SNMP or IPMI?"

I was never able to get monitoring via SNMP working unfortunately, but
with IPMI it's pretty simple.

Install OpenIPMI
Install ipmitool
Run this nagios script...


You don't need nagios (although I highly recommend it) as you can just
parse the exit codes yourself, and respond to them as you wish.
