IBM Power720 Linux Temperature Monitoring?

IBM Power720 Linux Temperature Monitoring?

IBM Power720 Linux Temperature Monitoring?

I have a Power 720 (E4B) I picked up in prestine condition. All firmware up to date, etc.

So I went ahead and installed SLES 11.4 and Fedora Server 27. Both work like a charm. Now this is a non-HMC managed server.

Question: Is there any packaged or other means to monitor the system temperatures? I installed the lm_sensors package on Fedora 27, and tho it runs, it doesn't report any temperatures as it doesn't "know" the Power7 cpu or any other means on the Power720 to get temps.

So, how do I go about reading (monitoring) the system temps?

Any help or ideas welcome.

Found it:

IBM Systems Director.

Can still be downloaded as of March 2018 (Server, v6.3.2) if you look hard enough...
