I forgot to attach our ATD! ;-)

The reason it worries about high load is that we
used to see processes hang trying to read from the
IPMI device, but haven't seen that with more recent



[ -e /dev/ipmi0 ] || exit 0

load=$(cat /proc/loadavg | awk '{print $3}' | awk -F. '{print $1}')

if [ $load -gt 16 ]
        exit 0

TEMPS=$(/usr/bin/ipmitool sensor | grep Temp | awk '{print $1 ":" $4 }')
for i in $TEMPS; do
        type=`echo $i | awk -F: '{print $1}'`
        temp=`echo $i | awk -F: '{print $2}'`
        gmetric -n "$type Temp" -v "$temp" -t float -u Celcius
