A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

This is a barebone FreeIPMI based Nagios IPMI monitoring script. The top of the file includes a basic help for getting it rolling and the script is discussed in the post.

Latest versions can always be found at the svn link:

Current work is to add handling for the ipmi chassis info (instead of just the ipmi sensors command). I'm testing it presently but it can be found at: for the curious. The re-factored version will be merged in as the new main target once I've determined nothing has been broken critically.
