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

You can see more options in the manual page.
