What are some suggested ways to monitor hardware status on Ubuntu machines? (i.e. check processor status, if a hard drive is conneccted, fan rpms, temperature) The goal is to make the monitoring as hardware independent as possible? For example, no reconfiguration if there is a supermico motherboard or gigabyte motherboad.
I've looked into solutions such as SBLIM, but the providers seem to be lacking. SNMP based solutions also look promising, but hard drive information has proven to be difficult.
Any suggestions, or solutions you use?hardware monitoring in Ubuntu
