installing or using the ParaStation GridMonitor.

Description: when clicking on node-specific pages, no or not all values for node temperatures or fan speeds are shown.
when using the lmsensors package to read sensors data,
check for the sensors output on
each node. The
lmsensors package must be
installed and configured to return correct values for certain
The output of sensors should look like this:
VCore 1: +1.42 V (min = +1.42 V, max = +1.57 V) VCore 2: +3.31 V (min = +1.42 V, max = +1.57 V) +3.3V: +3.26 V (min = +3.14 V, max = +3.47 V) +5V: +4.95 V (min = +4.76 V, max = +5.24 V) +12V: +12.04 V (min = +10.82 V, max = +13.19 V) -12V: -11.46 V (min = -13.18 V, max = -10.80 V) -5V: -2.13 V (min = -5.25 V, max = -4.75 V) V5SB: +5.38 V (min = +4.76 V, max = +5.24 V) VBat: +3.84 V (min = +2.40 V, max = +3.60 V) fan1: 5314 RPM (min = 2848 RPM, div = 2) fan2: 5075 RPM (min = 2848 RPM, div = 2) fan3: 3409 RPM (min = 1424 RPM, div = 4) temp1: +45C (high = +65C, hyst = +60C) temp2: +25.0C (high = +85C, hyst = +80C) temp3: +24.5C (high = +85C, hyst = +80C)
Example 12.1. Sample sensors output
If your system does not support at least 2 fans (fan1, fan2) and 3 temperatures (temp1, temp2, temp3), the missing values are reported as '0'. This may lead to unexpected events and alarms.
When using IPMI to read sensor data, check the command ipmitool for proper sensor data output:
master: # ipmitool -I lan -H node01-bmc -U root -P root sdr list Temp | -58 degrees C | ok Temp | -56 degrees C | ok Temp | 40 degrees C | ok Temp | 40 degrees C | ok Ambient Temp | 20 degrees C | ok CMOS Battery | 0x00 | ok …
Example 12.2. Sample IPMI output
Check for proper mapping of real to virtual sensors, see the section called “Configuring the collector – step 6” for details.
