I've been looking around and haven't seen anything, but I thought I'd
Anyone seen anything like lmsensors for *BSD? I've found healthd (spotty
on most of my hardware), x/mbmon (generally works), lmmon (really spotty).
While mbmon is mostly working out, what this and the other packages lack
is any integration with net-snmp. I already gather stats and monitor most
server info via snmp which is very handy. I noticed the
lmsensors+net-snmp packages on linux make all the system health info
available by default via snmp.
Any thoughts? I suppose I could have snmpd fire off a script when certain
mibs are tickled, but I loathe reinventing the wheel. I thought I saw
some talk long ago about a FreeBSD port of lmsensors, but could find no
further mention of that. I have to imagine most large scale users like
the Yahoo! folks are doing something... who would run a huge farm of BSD
boxes and not monitor something like a $10 CPU fan that could bring a
whole box down?
