[Beowulf] gpu+server health monitoring -- ensure system cooling

Hi Kevin,

nvidia-healthmon is the tool I've used for this kind of thing in the past.
It can do temperature checks as well as some sanity checks for things like
PCIe connectivity.


For more general monitoring (I.e. compute and memory usage), I've used
Ganglia with the NVML plugins. Not sure how well maintained these are
