Re: temperture sensors / configuring thresholds

Thresholds are not configurable. They are set based on the components that they protect and can't be changed due to risk to the system.

Re: temperture sensors / configuring thresholds

but on the system management it says that the ambient sensor may be configurable.

from the system managment help page

Threshold: This is the shutdown threshold temperature sensor setting in degrees celsius. This is the temperature in which the sensor will be considered to be in a failed state thus causing the system to be shutdown.

Note: Only the Ambient zone type allows setting of the threshold temperature. Not all (maybe one or none) sensors can set this value.

It's incorrect. They are not configurable.

Re: temperture sensors / configuring thresholds

so their just teasers?

what about the bonus question is there anyway to read / log the temps?

Re: temperture sensors / configuring thresholds

MRTG and RRDtool, the open source tools mentioned in the paper, are now both available for Windows (and work in exactly the same way).

Re: temperture sensors / configuring thresholds

Im actually suprised that the threshold for the ambient temp is 30c / 100f that seems low to me.

From the QuickSpecs for the DL380 G5 @ http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12477_na/12477_na.html#Technical%20Specifications

System Inlet Temperature

Operating
10° to 35°C (50° to 95°F) at sea level with an altitude derating of 1.0°C per every 305 m (1.8°F per every 1000 ft) above sea level to a maximum of 3050 m (10,000 ft), no direct sustained sunlight. Maximum rate of change is 10°C/hr (18°F/hr). The upper limit may be limited by the type and number of options installed.

System performance may be reduced if operating with a fan fault or above 30°C (86°F).

Non-operating

-30° to 60°C (-22° to 140°F). Maximum rate of change is 20°C/hr (36°F/hr).
