Monitoring IPMI SEL in real time


Hello Everybody ,

I want to monitor IPMI System Event Log(SEL) in real time. What I want that is that whenever a event is generated in SEL , automatically a mail alert should be generated .

One way for me to achieve this is that I can write a script and schedule it in cron. The script will run 3 or 4 times a day so whenever a new event is generated , a mail alert will be send to me.

I want the monitoring to be active. Like whenever a event is generated , a mail should be sent to me instead of checking at regular intervals. Any way to achieve this with a bash script.

The SEL Log format is as follows:

server-001% sudo ipmitool sel list

b4 | 05/27/2009 | 13:38:32 | Fan #0x37 | Upper Critical going high

c8 | 05/27/2009 | 13:38:35 | Fan #0x37 | Upper Critical going high

dc | 08/15/2009 | 07:07:50 | Fan #0x37 | Upper Critical going high

So , for the above case whenever a new event is generated , automatically a mail alert should be send to me with the event.

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
Zaman

Use a ipmiseld or ipmievd(-like) deamon process to pull SEL into syslog, have rsyslog filter for it and email you (ommail module)?
