getting system health state

Post by willemgrooters » Tue Jan 04, 2022 10:54 am

Is there a way to get the "physical health state" of an Alpha (PWS, DS10) and Itanium (RX2620): CPU and memory temperature, fan state, power state etc, by a program, to monitor and signalling of "extreme" situations BEFORE they occur?
DS10 has RMC in snoop mode, which allows me to display a status - when it does react, which is not always the case - but that can only be done via console.

For my DS10L, I can get CPU temperature examining f$getsyi("TEMPERATURE_VECTOR"). The last 2 digits are a hex encoding of the temperature in Celsius. I haven't found any other CPUs that this works. Since the 10L is a 1U box, keeping the thing cool is a problem.

This script used to work on my DS20E Alpha's, but not anymore on my current Integrity servers. Currently using CockpitMgr which does all the HW monitoring.

I added an extra check to the "env_check" script:

Code: Select all

---
$ activecpu_cnt = f$getsyi("ACTIVECPU_CNT")    
$ availcpu_cnt  = f$getsyi("AVAILCPU_CNT")     
----
$ gosub cpu_check    
----
$cpu_check:                                                                     
$ if availcpu_cnt  .gt. 1                                                      
$ then                                                                         
$   if activecpu_cnt .lt. availcpu_cnt                                         
$   then write sys$output                                                     -
            "CPU is BAD : avail ''availcpu_cnt' / active ''activecpu_cnt'"     
$   else write sys$output "CPUs are Good"                                      
$   endif                                                                      
$ else                                                                         
$   write sys$output "CPU is Good"                                             
$ endif                                                                        
$ return

Thanks - great script, gives the information I needed. It would be nice if Cockpit manager was available for community members in some form

What I'm doing using DCL and Kermit scripting to connect to the iLo and do a PS command to get the power supply status and temp then checking the output. Works for Alpha and I64.

Hello Ian,

is there an example how this can be done?
That would be very helpful.

The script from Neil is not working on my Integrity. Some "Termal_vector" is not loaded.


Best Regards,

Christoph

the DCL is like this

Code: Select all

$!
$ nodename = F$GETSYI("NODENAME")
$ script = F$SEARCH("CMANAGER:GET-''nodename'-TEMP.KERMIT")
