Checking the power supply status without logging into ILO interactively

I have a garden variety of Proliant servers, all running a recent incarnation of Red Hat enterprise Linux (read as mostly versions of 5 and 6). The number of servers is in hundreds and I need to make sure all power supplies are in good condition before the data center building power maintenance starts.


I am looking for a way to get the power supply status of all these servers, either logging into ILO remotely and running whatever comand (which I don't know) and log the output to a report file, or execute something from the Linux OS to inquire the status of power supplies. I have the privileged ILO account names and passwords to all servers if necessary.


Is this possible ?

UNIX because I majored in cryptology...

If you have the hp-health driver loaded you can run 'hplog -p' to dispaly power data.


Another option is to use 'hponcfg' on the local system or remotely using 'cpqlocfg.exe' or '' and this RIBCL to pull the health data
