libipmimonitoring - a library for IPMI system event and sensor monitoring


#include <ipmi_monitoring.h>


The Libipmimonitoring implements a high level sensor and system event monitoring API. For system events, an iterator interface is provided that allows the user to iterate through system events, types, states, and more. For sensors, an iterator and callback interface is provided that allows the user to iterate through sensor values, types, units, states, and more.

In order to improve efficiency, SDR data will be cached on the host. By default it is cached in /var/cache/ipmimonitoringsdrcache.

Interpretation rules for system events and sensors are guided by libfreeipmi(3)'s interpretation library. Configuration of the interpretation rules can be configurd via the configuration file /etc/freeipmi//freeipmi_interpret_sel.conf. and /etc/freeipmi//freeipmi_interpret_sensor.conf See freeipmi_interpret_sel.conf(5) and freeipmi_interpret_sensor.conf(5) for more information on configuring sensor and system event interpretations.
