Use "ipmi-sensors" tools

ipmi-sensors is a free software used to display sensor information (the package name is “freeipmi-tools”).

Here are some useful commands:

-v, --verbose Output verbose sensor output.
This option will output additional information about sensors such as thresholds, ranges,
numbers, and event/reading type codes.

–output-sensor-state Output sensor state in output.
This will add an additional output reporting if a sensor is in a NOMINAL, WARNING, or CRITICAL
state. The sensor state is an interpreted value based on the current sensor event. The sensor
state interpretations are determined by the configuration file
/etc/freeipmi//freeipmi_interpret_sensor.conf.

You can see more options in the manual page.
